Research tells us that 93% of high school students say they plan to go to college; yet, just over one quarter (26%) of Arizonans over the age of 25 have obtained a college degree. To address this educational deficit Arizona leaders have identified goals of increased college going and completion rates through the Arizona Ready Council.
Increase the number of community college students earning associate degrees and/or certificates to 44,000 and the number of in-state university transfers to 12,500; and
Double the number of students receiving baccalaureate degrees to 36,000 per year. The impact of the Arizona College Application Campaign Pilot clearly indicates that the AzCAC Initiative has the potential help the state meet these Arizona Ready 2020 Goals. Data collected from the 9 participating schools provides initial data upon which to base inferences of potential results if the Initiative was taken statewide. An Infographic Summary of survey data from students and site coordinators collected regarding the Campaign.
