One of the missions of College Unbound is to provide an opportunity to gain a Bachelor’s Degree for adult students who have been unsuccessful in other college settings.
What happens when those unsuccessful first college experiences come with a heavy price tag? A student with an unpaid debt to their first college cannot get an official transcript, and thus cannot enter another college. Many prospective College Unbound student owe only a few hundred dollars – but it’s enough to make sure that they cannot receive financial aid or an official transcript.
Earning a relevant Bachelor’s Degree improves the earning potential, skills and qualities of our workforce. We would be wise to invest in these adult learners, just as they are willing to invest their time and energy in improving themselves.
We are committed to coming up with solutions to help the adults that can’t move forward in college until the debt is paid.
