Board of Regents Completion Initiative

  1. 1. Strategies for Increasing College Completion David L. Buhler Commissioner of Higher Education August 27, 2013
  2. 2.  ―College Completion‖ is a strategic priority of the Board of Regents  About half of our students graduate—less than the national average  Presidents have been working on a number of strategies and efforts to improve completion and the number of graduates and are making progress  Particular challenge for open-access institutions Improving College Completion: A Board of Regents Priority
  3. 3. Using Funding to Support Completion Initiatives  Mission Based Funding –Distinctive Mission  2013-14 most of Distinctive Mission  $4.3 million for completion  40% for participation  10% for economic development  2013-14 Performance Funding ($1 million) also focuses on initiatives to enhance completion  Institutions identified specific strategies  Funding distributed based on results  July 2014
  4. 4. System-Wide Steps  Adopt proven strategies to further the Regents’ completion agenda  Recommendations are supported by USHE Presidents  Based on data and research from Complete College America
  5. 5. Time is the Enemy  Barriers to completion include:  Taking fewer hours than possible  Delayed by developmental courses  Student confusion from too many choices  Utah has particular challenges with the number of students who take time out for religious service  Thus, we must do everything we can to remove barriers to completion
  6. 6. Current Completion Rates 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 2 Years 3 Years 4 Years 21% 27% 32% 4% 7% 10% Graduation Rates of AA/AS Students at USHE Institutions Fall 2007 Cohort (CCA) Full-Time Part-Time
  7. 7. Current Completion Rates 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 4 Years 6 Years 29% 47% 9% 18% Graduation Rates of BA/BS Students at USHE Institutions Fall 2005 Cohort (CCA) Full-Time Part-Time
  8. 8. Credits Attempted System-Wide - 10,000 20,000 30,000 40,000 50,000 60,000 1-5 6-11 12-14 15+ Headcount 30,769 46,723 54,491 30,546 All USHE students Number of credits attempted 19% 29% 33% 19%
  9. 9. Completion Strategy #1 Define Full-Time as 15 Credits per Semester  Increases likelihood of graduating on time, earning higher grades, and higher completion rates  Students who take more credits finish college faster and enter the workforce sooner  University of Hawai’i system found regardless of preparation, students who took 15 or more hours performed better.
  10. 10. Completion Strategy #2 Use Plateau Tuition as Incentive  Taking more credit hours per semester maximizes students’ tuition dollars & time  Can result in saving one year’s cost of tuition/fees  Students’ tuition bills are not dependent on the number of credits they take, but are constant over time
  11. 11. Completion Strategy #3 Create ―Graduation Maps‖ for Each Major  Provide students with clearer sense of which courses to take when  Help students stay on track to finish their degrees on time  Help institutions know which courses to offer when  Prospective students can see what a particular major will look like
  12. 12. First-Year Program Map for BS in Chemical Engineering at the University of Utah Course Prefix Course Number Course Title Credit Hours MATH 1310 Eng Calculus 4 CHEM 1210 General Chemistry 4 CHEM 1215 General Chemistry Lab 1 WRTG 2010 Intermediate Writing 3 CH EN 1703 Intro to Chem Eng 2 ETHC 2500 Intro to Ethnic Studies 3 FIRST SEMESTER SECOND SEMESTER Course Prefix Course Number Course Title Credit Hours MATH 1320 Eng Calculus II 4 CHEM 1220 General Chemistry II 4 CHEM 1225 General Chemistry Lab II 1 PHYS 2210 Phycs for Scien & Eng I 4 CH EN 1705 Chem Eng Design & Innov 3 CH EN 4755 Undergraduate Seminar .5 TOTAL CREDITS: 17 TOTAL CREDITS: 16.5 Source: University of Utah Course Catalog 2013-14
  13. 13. Completion Strategy #4 Improve Success of Developmental Math  40% of Utah college students are placed in developmental courses  Fewer than 50% of students move on to college-level math within two years  Encouraging students to enroll in math their first year will help them move on to college-level courses in a timely manner
  14. 14. Completion Strategy #5 Institute Reverse Transfer/Stackable Credentials  Students who receive associate degree are more likely to complete four-year degree  Those who don’t finish will at least have one credential on their resumes  Reverse transfer allows a student’s achievements to be recognized with an associate degree after they’ve transferred to a four-year school
  15. 15. Getting the word out on Completion
  16. 16. Getting the word out on Completion
  17. 17. Board of Regents’ Resolution Providing Direction to Institutions in Five Areas 1. Establishing 15 credits as the standard for ―full- time.‖ 2. Setting plateau tuition to provide a financial incentive focused on 12-15 credit hours. 3. For new students without college math credit, encourage them to enroll in math during the first year and successful transitions from developmental to for-credit math. 4. Create accessible graduation maps for each major. 5. Carefully explore feasibility of implementing reverse transfer/stackable credentials.
