Moving from a Degree-Centric Postsecondary System to an Incremental Credentialing System: What Happens to Learners’ Financing Options?

“CREDENTIAL AS YOU GO” RECEIVES NEARLY $3 MILLION FROM U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION GRANT PROGRAM

“Credential as You Go” has recently been awarded an Institute of Education Sciences (IES) grant through the “Transformative Research in the Education Sciences” program. The federal grant, totaling nearly $3 million ($2,999,998.13) over three years will be managed by SUNY Empire State, and co-led by Corporation for a Skilled Workforce and George Washington University and will engage a national partnership of state systems of higher education, colleges and universities, employers, accreditation organizations, and many others. CAYG’s goal is to develop a widely recognized incremental credentialing system for U.S. postsecondary education that will improve academic and labor market outcomes for learners.
