High School Education Pathway

In 2008, the University System of Georgia approved a policy to award high school students who successfully completed the Education Pathway three (3) college credit hours in lieu of EDUC 2110 Investigating Critical and Contemporary Issues in Education.

For students enrolling in USG institutions (prior to fall 2011) and meeting all the criteria for successful completion outlined below, with the exception of passing the statewide assessment, USG institutions may award credit based on agreements with local school systems.

For students enrolling at USG institutions in the fall of 2011 or later, credit will be awarded for all students from any Georgia public school who satisfy the criteria for successful completion outlined below. Students should contact their high school and request required documentation be provided to the Registrar’s Office.

Successful completion is defined as follows:

  1. Passing the three Education Pathway courses with a minimum grade of C,

    • 13.01100 - Examining the Teaching Profession

    • 13.01200 - Contemporary Issues in Education

    • 13.01300 - Teaching as a Profession Practicum

  2. Completion of a portfolio as part of the Pathway course requirements, and

  3. Passing of the statewide assessment (unless prior to fall 2011).
