Helping Adults Students Reclaim a Degree They’ve Already Earned

4 million adults with some college and no degree have earned enough credit for an associate degree, but don’t have any credential to show for it

Reported by The Chronicle of Higher Education, the Institute for Higher Education Policy has announced a campaign to help hundreds of colleges develop “degree reclamation” expertise. Their goal is to help students who have earned enough credits to earn an associate’s degree on their way to a bachelor’s – to receive that first credential.

The takeaway? With associate’s degree holders earning approximately $400,000 more in their career than a high school graduate, how do we help students get credit for this credential they’ve already earned, and keep them moving toward their bachelor’s and beyond?
