SD Looks To Send More Adult Learners To College
July 13, 2009, 7:14 AM
South Dakota is one of five states invited to join in a grant-funded project aimed at getting more adult learners into post-secondary education.
The goal in South Dakota is to identify "ready adults," a term for students who already have completed 90 credit hours or more toward an academic degree but have withdrawn or stopped prior to graduation.
Earlier this year, South Dakota's public universities were selected to participate in the project, along with New Jersey, Arkansas, Colorado, and Nevada.
The "Non-Traditional No More: Policy Solutions for Adult Learners" program is sponsored by the Lumina Foundation for Education and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education.
