JACKSON -- Students from the state''s community and junior colleges will be able to transfer more credits to four-year universities under a proposal approved by the state College Board on Thursday.
The new policy ensures the transfer of all core curriculum courses with the grade of C or better.
Board member Robin Robinson says the purpose of the policy is to maximize the number of courses that count toward a bachelor''s degree at a four-year college from an Associate of Arts degree at a community or junior college.
The College Board first approved the policy in February. The second approval Thursday was needed for it to go into effect.
