About the Webconference

With many states pledging to double their degree attainment rates by 2025, degree completion programs represent one of the highest impact methods for meeting the “completion challenge.” Many COE units are finding the ideal audience for these programs resides in their own backyard: students who previously stopped out of the university. While the expected rise in adult degree completers is a boon for COE units, these students face a number professional, financial, and familial barriers that threaten their ability to restart and complete their studies.

This webconference profiles several programs that reengage stopouts in degree completion programs, highlighting strategies for simplified readmission procedures, low-cost financial incentives, and state-wide resource sharing agreements that compel students to reenroll.
