April 2013 Regional College Success Summit

Since 2011, working groups in the areas of access, curriculum alignment, and data collection have collaborated on developing a regional strategy for college completion and student success. At last spring's summit, K-12 and higher education regional leaders proposed a goal of 60% degree attainment in Central Ohio by 2025 and called for a Central Ohio Compact to promote teamwork and innovation across the region.

Reverse Transfer/Credit When It’s Due
Ohio is one of 12 states to receive a portion of the $6.4 million funding from the two-year Credit When It’s Due: Recognizing the Value of Quality Associate Degrees grant. The grant is designed to study “reverse-transfer,” a process to award associate degrees to students who attended a community college and transferred to a four-year institution where they are currently enrolled and have completed the required coursework to earn an associate degree.
