Associate Vice President, University Affairs & Academic Services Ms. Sheila Caldwell Director, Complete College Georgia

2 Complete College Georgia
“Any significant increase in the number of Georgians who complete college will require a historic new era of coordination between the state’s public and private colleges and the business community,” said Deal. “To have a successful future in Georgia, and remain competitive nationwide and globally, we have to have an educated workforce, and that means we need to do a better job getting people into college, make sure they receive a high-quality education and then graduate them.” Governor Deal Comments on CCG

3 Why CCG? By 2020, 61% of Jobs require certificate or degree
34% of Georgia Adults have an Associate Degree or Higher 27% Skills Gap Chaudron Need an additional 250,00 graduates by the year We must do something so jobs will not be outsourced. We also want to enable Georgia and citizens to compete in the local, national and global economy.

6 Why 15 to Finish? Too few students make it through
Drop-outs costs billions annually Spend less on college degree Higher Earnings in Workforce Performance Based Funding

7 Too Few Make it Through Sheila
Out of 100 students – 5 graduate on time from 2 year and 11 graduate on time from 4 year. That translates into 10% for 2 year and 25% for four year that will graduate on time. It is urgent that we reverse the PT trend.

8 College Dropout Consequences
Higher Unemployment Lower Median Income Higher Loan Default Rates Chaudron Education Sector – Degreeless in Debt: What Happens to Borrowers who Drop Out In 2009, the unemployment rate for borrowers who dropped out was 10 percentage points higher than that for borrowers who graduated: In 2009,the median income for borrowers who dropped out was $25,000, compared to $30,000 for borrowers who graduated Borrowers who dropped out were more than four times more likely than borrowers who graduated to default on their loans: 16.8 percent versus 3.7 percent

9 Higher Unemployment 6 Months of Unemployment = $45,000 behind in lifetime earnings Unemployment costs the government $9,900 per year for 25 – 34 year-old The US loses $25 Billion Annually Source – The Young Invincibles

10 Billions lost in State Funding
Sheila Source – American Institute of Research Losing billions in state funding – Direct loss for the state with no return on investment – many of these students will also borrow – cannot pay back and they are not earning high wages – which in turn can fuel the economy with purchasing power and tax generation.

11 College Completion Benefits
Learn More, Save More Quicker Entry in Workforce Higher Wages If we do not help them go through quicker, they are less likely to graduate. Learn More (Higher GPA’s and lower college costs) In the workforce or graduate school 1 year = an additional $10,000 - $20,000 annually

15 Higher Hourly Wages UNG Bachelor Degree Holders earn an average of $18.00 per hour compared to HS Graduates who earn $8.00 per hour.

16 Higher Annual Incomes 2–Year Degree holders earn an average of $9,400 more annually than high school graduates. 4-Year Degree holders earn an average of $21,100 more annually than high school graduates.

17 Higher Lifetime Earnings
Sheila 1) The U.S. Census Bureau reports that lifetime earnings soar with an education. The Big Payoff Report reveals that over an adult’s working life, college graduates with a bachelor’s degree can expect, on average, to earn $1,000,000 more than high school graduates. Ask them, how many of you could use an extra million ? Everyone raises their hand, including me and the teachers. Now they have a million reasons to go to college because that is what a college degree can do for you.
