NVCC’s ‘Go Back to Get Ahead’ Success Stories

It’s been nearly a year since the Board of Regents for Higher Education launched the Go Back to Get Ahead program, an effort championed by Governor Dannel P. Malloy to give “lapsed” college students the opportunity to get their education back on track and develop a better-educated workforce and more-competitive state economy. Overall, the program, which offered free college courses to in-state residents who have started but not completed a degree, received nearly 9,000 inquiries and enrolled more than 1,400 students in the 17 Connecticut State Colleges and Universities from June 2014 through March 2015.
