What your college prep student needs to know.

Remember that whole speech I made yesterday about doing personal finance math instead of Calculus or the like?  Well, the Board of Regents of the University System of GA has released guidelines that must be made to be considered entry into a GA state college, so if that is your goal,  any Personal Finance Class will have to be an elective, or perhaps you can use Economics/Business classes to satisfy the social science requirement.

So, if a GA state college is your goal, (and this probably applies to many state colleges across the country, here is what your child will need to complete beginning the school year 2012-1013.  (As my kids are not applying to state colleges, this is not a problem for us.

These changes were set to phase in last time I checked, but they have already been adopted as of this coming school year.  The only potential problem I see for my daughter is that she did 2 years of American History, and only 1/2 year of world history....  She is doing government this coming year.  However, she did do history of theater, and art history, so I may use them in the history category for her transcript.  Like I said, she is not applying to any public colleges.
