Learning Support Transfer Students

     Bainbridge College will honor the grades made by transfer students in Learning Support courses at all colleges in the University System of Georgia. If a student has satisfactorily completed one or more of the three areas at another college, that student will not be required to take the appropriate Learning Support course at Bainbridge College. If a student transfers prior to completing Learning Support requirements at another system unit, he/she will be placed in Learning Support courses according to Bainbridge College's placement requirements for a beginning degree-seeking student.
