Searching for Our Lost Associate's Degrees: Project Win-Win at the Finish Line - Three years ago, the Institute for Higher Education Policy began a quest called "Project Win-Win" in which 61 associate's degree-granting colleges in nine states would identify former students whose records indicated they should have gotten degrees, but didn't. They also identified former students who were quite close to getting degrees. They found more than 6,700 students eligible for a retroactive degree, more than 4,500 of whom received degrees. Of those who were close, 1,700 have returned to college. The author makes recommendations for future, similar programs. (Clifford Adelman, Institute for Higher Education Policy, October 2013)...
