U.S. and Georgia History and Constitution Requirements
Georgia state law requires that any person receiving a degree from a state-supported institution of higher learning must pass examinations in the histories of the United States and Georgia and on the Constitution of the United States and Georgia.
Students may meet these requirements by passing HIST 2111 or 2112 and POLS 1101 at West Georgia. The U.S. and Georgia history requirements may also be satisfied by passing examinations developed by the History Department and administered by the Testing Office. The Georgia Constitution requirement may also be satisfied by passing an examination developed by the Political Science and Planning Department and administered by the Testing Office.
Transfer students who have fulfilled any or all of these requirements will be notified of that fact at the time of admission on the "Evaluation of Transfer Credit" form. Students transferring from institutions outside the state of Georgia who receive credit for HIST 2111 or 2112 and/or POLS 1101 will not have satisfied the Georgia history and constitution requirements. The Georgia history and constitution requirements can be satisfied by passing examinations administered each semester by the Testing Office.
