Yuba Community College District joins Degrees When Due initiative

YUBA CITY, Calif. – The Yuba Community College District has been selected to join Degrees When Due, a national initiative of the Institute for Higher Education Policy, or IHEP, to help students who have some college credits to complete their degrees.

As one of the colleges and universities from 20 states participating in Degrees When Due, YCCD will learn best practices in degree reclamation and provide targeted support while re-engaging students who have paused, or “stopped out,” their studies.

YCCD’s participation in the initiative is facilitated through the California State University Sacramento; Los Rios and Sierra Community College Districts are also participating.

“We are very pleased to join the Degrees When Due initiative as the program outcomes align with our strategic goal of increasing student success and maximizing the student experience through innovative curriculum and well-aligned student service programs designed to enhance student learning and completion,” stated Dr. Sonja Lolland, YCCD interim vice chancellor of education and planning.

Degrees When Due will grant YCCD access to a variety of resources to help more students complete their degrees and to help the institution audit students’ previously earned and transfer credits to determine the most efficient pathway to graduation.

The program will benefit the more than 530,263 individuals in California who have been identified as having some college credits, but no awarded degree.

“Our Degrees When Due institutional and state partners are building a strong pathway to degree attainment for all students, including by providing an on-ramp for those who have paused their studies or ‘stopped-out,’” said IHEP President Michelle Asha Cooper, Ph.D. “IHEP enthusiastically welcomes the selected institutions and states to this effort. Through this initiative, they will increase student success, serve a diverse set of student populations, and join us in addressing one of higher education’s most pressing challenges: degree completion.”
