In our last post, we shared some of the information gathered by Complete College America about college completion rates. In their report The Four-Year Myth CCA shared some sobering information about the length of time that most students in this country need to complete their degrees. We think it is important for parents to understand the environment in which their students are entering higher education.
As college parents, we also want to do all that we can to ensure, or at least increase the chances, that our student will be one of the growing minority of students who will complete their degree “on-time.” So we wonder what we, and what our students, can do to maximize their success.
What are Complete College America’s Game Changers?
Complete College America is an organization designed to work with higher education from the state point of view. Their recommendations are intended for institutions and for the states. Parents can begin by understanding what states and schools can and should be doing. But then parents and their students can think about how they might implement some of these Game Changers personally.
