Higher Education For All

Our mission: To assist individuals continue on their education paths to make their dreams of degree attainment a reality, through information, guidance and mentoring.

The US College completion rates are stagnant or falling today, a trend that threatens to undermine the nation’s global competitiveness and further exacerbate inequality in the nation’s income distribution Reversing the current trend and increasing college completion has become imperative at all levels of American government.  The largest subset of students in the nation are students referred to in the past as the nontraditional population, thus creating the largest area of opportunity to reversing these trends; higher education is not structured to serve this population adequately..

Non-traditional students can be defined

Age is often used as a criterion for defining a nontraditional student, typically 25 and older

Background characteristics may include socioeconomic status, ethnicity, first-generation & employment status

At-risk characteristics may include one or more of the following:

♦ delays enrollment into postsecondary education

♦ attends part-time

♦ is financially independent of parents

♦ works full-time while enrolled

♦ has dependents other than a spouse

♦ is a single parent

♦ lacks a standard high school diploma
