Assessment of Opportunities and Models for Adults to Complete the Baccalaureate Degree at Virginia Four- Year Institutions - The researchers assess adult degree completion programs at Virginia universities and colleges, and identify strategies to improve these programs and related services. Key findings include: the proportion of working-age adults in Virginia who have attained a bachelorís degree or higher compares favorably to other states while there are significant discrepancies between regions of the state, and between various demographic groups; affordability and accessibility are common barriers; and the programs serve primarily those students with a strong motivation to obtain a degree. Strategies to overcome the barriers are included. (Virginia Tech Office of Economic Development, March 2012)...
