This calculator tool equips you with cost/revenue information needed to help make the case for using debt forgiveness as a strategy at your institution to re-enroll adult learners who stopped out. Although this tool relies on best-case-scenario assumptions regarding re-enrollment and sustained progress, the calculations can be used to set a baseline and begin the conversation on initiating a debt-forgiveness program at your institution. Encouraging students to return and cross the degree finish line not only helps the student but benefits the institution as well.
