Lumina's Adult Degree Completion Commitment

Lumina Foundation is proud to announce a significant new commitment to advancing adult degree attainment through a series of interconnected projects that aim to engage, motivate and help students who previously have gone to college to actually earn their degrees. With 37 million adults ages 25 to 64 -- more than 20 percent of the working age population -- having attended a college but never earned a degree or credential, these efforts to provide a second chance for these adults could be a big boost to the nation's goal to dramatically increase college degree attainment and advance the nation's workforce productivity.

It also contains national data and state-specific estimates that show attainment of high-quality postsecondary certificates.
