From Setback to Success: Meeting Comebackers Where They Are

New Report Highlights Strategies to Reengage Students with Some College, No Credential

Over 6 million Californians ages 25 to 64 have completed some college but have not yet earned a credential. Against the backdrop of ongoing enrollment declines and skilled workforce shortages, supporting this prospective student population to completion and success serves as a critical component in addressing the state’s postsecondary and economic challenges. Our new report, which draws upon over 50 interviews with comebacker students (those who exited college and reenrolled) and a community of practice through CaliforniaAttain!, identifies four key areas, each with its own set of recommendations, for promoting reenrollment and degree attainment while also shifting higher education structures to address the needs of today’s diverse college-going population.
