In 2015, more than 35 million Americans aged 25 and older had completed some college but had not completed a degree. A recent report by the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) examines how two degree-reclamation initiatives, Project Win-Win and Credit When It’s Due, can be scaled up to the national level.
Degree reclamation includes a combination of evidence-based and equity-focused strategies that help institutions reengage the “some college, no degree” population in completing any remaining credits for an associate’s degree. The authors also propose policy and practice recommendations at the institutional, state and federal levels.
