By 2020, it is projected that over 60 percent of jobs in Georgia will require some form of a college education, whether a certificate, associate’s degree, or bachelor’s degree. Today, only 42 percent of the state’s young adults, its burgeoning workforce, qualify. Georgia’s level of higher education attainment is not expected to notably increase in this time period. Georgia’s Higher Education Completion Plan, a joint effort between the University System of Georgia and the Technical College System of Georgia, defines a way forward (Georgia’s Higher Education Completion Plan, 2012). Complete College America (CCA) is a national initiative that has garnered considerable attention from Georgia Governor, Nathan Deal. As a result, the State of Georgia has created a mandate for the Technical College System of Georgia and the University System of Georgia – Complete College Georgia (CCG). Complete College Georgia will systemize and direct our efforts towards meeting the challenges and expectations established by Complete College America.
