Complete College Georgia

The University of North Georgia (UNG), as a member of the University System of Georgia (USG), has developed an institutional plan to support the Complete College Georgia initiative. Complete College Georgia was announced by Gov. Nathan Deal as a statewide initiative in the wake of a 2011 study by Georgetown University that found Georgia will need to increase the percentage of its population with some level of college completion from a current 42 percent to 60 percent to meet projected workforce needs. The result is an ambitious goal of adding 250,000 postsecondary graduates to Georgia’s workforce by 2020.

Our Mission

The mission of UNG emphasizes academic excellence, a student-focused environment, and distinction as a state leadership institution and The Military College of Georgia. With five campuses located across the northern region of the state, and through partnerships with local educational agencies, government, and industry, the new university is strategically situated to address the critical need for an educated workforce for economic growth in the region. The Complete College Georgia plan for UNG builds on a history of exemplary institutional initiatives aimed at improving student success and retention, progression, and graduation.

USG Goals

The USG has developed five goals for Complete College Georiga.

  • College Readiness
  • Improving Access & Completion for Under-served Students
  • Shortening the Time to Degree
  • Restructuring Instructional Delivery
  • Transforming Remediation

Strategies and Activities

  • Redesigning math and English remediation to use a co-requisite course model
  • 15 to Finish campaign, encouraging students to take enough courses each semester to finish a four-year degree in four years rather than five years
  • Prior Learning Assessment which awards students credit for knowledge they have demonstrated by examinations or by evaluation of military and corporate training
  • Dual Enrollment program for academically talented high school students which allows them to simultaneously earn high school and college credit
  • Increased opportunities for online coursework, both through the development of additional courses at UNG and by affiliation with the USG’s eCore,  expanding access for students.
  • Intentional Advising that supports students in graduating on time and on target through UNG’s QEP

UNG follows Section 508 Standards and WCAG 2.0 for web accessibility. If you require the content on this web page in another format, please contact the ADA Coordinator.
