Possible Dramatic Changes In Funding For Georgia Public Colleges

By  | 

Valdosta, GA - Plans are in the works in Georgia that could make a dramatic change in the way public colleges are funded.

The money would be tied to measures of performance, like graduation rates. The plan is from the Higher Education Funding Commission.

The amount of money colleges receive would be determined mainly by how well students progress through college and the number of degrees awarded.

The current formula is driven by enrollment and how many credits students take.
