Mo. Senate endorses college transfer credit library
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri senators have endorsed a bill that could make life a little easier for college transfer students.
The Senate gave first-round approval Wednesday to a bill that would require public college and universities to designate 25 lower-level college courses for which students can receive credit if they transfer to a new school elsewhere in Missouri
Sponsoring Sen. David Pearce has said such a library could make it easier for students to transfer coursework and finish their bachelor's degrees.
Transfer students sometimes lose credit for courses they have already passed at their old school if a course doesn't meet the academic requirements of their new school.
The Senate must approve the legislation once more before it goes to the House.
