The 101 on Evidence-Based College Completion Programs
Did you know colleges and universities fail to graduate just under half of all students who enter their programs? This is often due to external factors and barriers that affect students’ ability to focus on learning—like being a student parent or provider for their family, encountering mental health difficulties, or the rising cost of attendance. However, evidence-based college completion programs—like CUNY ASAP, InsideTrack, One Million Degrees and Bottom Line—offer a solution to this problem. This infographic explains what evidence-based college completion programs are, and how additional federal investment in completion and retention efforts will get more students across the finish line.
