The postsecondary credentialing system in the U.S. is in crisis. The centuries-old, traditional four-tiered system (associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate) can be insurmountable for many and punitive to those who do not complete any given tier. This system no longer serves our country’s social and economic needs.
About 50% of learners enrolled at public regional universities and community colleges drop or stop out before completing a degree, exiting without any credential. Many completed meaningful learning that could be represented by a credential if we offered incremental credentialing.
We are moving into Phase Two to expand the awareness and value of incremental credentialing. Learn more about what we have planned!
An Incremental Credentialing Model was developed through an 18-month planning, research, and testing project supported in 2019-2021 through a Lumina Foundation grant: Credential As You Go, Phase One.
The feasibility of a nationally recognized incremental credentialing system was explored through an 18-month planning, research, and testing project supported in 2019-2021 by a Lumina Foundation grant: Credential As You Go (CAYG): Phase One.
Credential As You Go Phase Two proudly announces an impressive National Advisory Board and a Team to move the agenda forward.
