Title:Certificates count: An analysis of sub-baccalaureate certificates
Organization:Complete College America
Short Description:This report calls attention to the significant value of certificate programs–practical and often underutilized credentials that can provide graduates with an appealing combination of rapid postsecondary achievement and portable skills and knowledge.
Annotation:A too often underutilized strategy – but one that can deliver greater income returns than associate and even some bachelor’s degrees – is certificates. And for students balancing the jobs they must have with the advanced education they desire – a situation faced by most American college students today – completing a certificate can be the most direct path to college completion and career success. Against this backdrop, this report calls attention to the significant value of certificate programs–practical and often underutilized credentials that can provide graduates with an appealing combination of rapid postsecondary achievement and portable skills and knowledge. Certificates can position graduates for immediate workforce success, while establishing solid foundations for future academic achievement.
