Ensuring equity and access to higher education remains a paramount concern for college and university leaders, especially as they navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Strategic partnerships with alternative credit providers can create an opportunity for higher education institutions to focus on affordable and sustainable pathways that help adult students get back to college.

  • Advantages and potential challenges of working with an alternative credit provider
  • How to get stopped-out students back into school and ensuring success for these students
