College Completion Strategies

Too many students start college and don’t finish, with the national six-year college completion rate at 62% in 2021. Among the millions of students who do not receive a degree, many are left with student loan debt without the benefits of higher paying jobs or increased economic security. Students struggle to complete their higher education pursuits for a variety of reasons, including lack of information and resources, financial challenges, family responsibilities, and increasing costs. College completion strategies aim to help get students across the finish line and into careers by providing a variety of financial and wraparound services to support increased college graduation rates. During this virtual meeting, learn about evidence- and research-based college completion strategies and hear from MDRC about their upcoming College Completion Strategy Guide.
