Indiana Senate approves Banks’ bill on college credits
Thursday, March 7, 2013 7:52 AM
Legislation authored by State Sen. Jim Banks, R-Columbia City, that he says will improve college affordability and efficiency passed the Senate on Feb. 26 by a unanimous vote.
Senate Bill 182 would build on Indiana's recent policies to improve the transferability of college credits, enabling students to get a more affordable, timely degree.
The bill requires the Indiana Commission for Higher Education and state colleges to develop policies that allow students who earn a two-year associate degree to transfer those credits to a related four-year bachelor's degree program at the same status as a junior.
The legislation approved by the Senate now heads to the House of Representatives for further consideration.
