Transfer Students Face Debt, More Classes
from U.S. News & World Report
Shannon DeJager began her long quest for a university degree 15 years ago, completing courses including biology, microbiology and organic chemistry at what was then called Georgia Perimeter College in the hope of going into nursing. When she transferred to the University of Alabama for a bachelor's degree, it wouldn't accept her credits in microbiology, requiring her to take that course again. The recession and a move forced DeJager to transfer a second time, to the University of North Georgia. That university won't take the credits she already earned for biology or chemistry, and she will now have to repeat those classes, too.
