How can HR help employees with Some College, No Credential (SCNC)?

Almost every state in America (45) has the goal to raise postsecondary education attainment. Yet, according to a report by the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, the Some College, No Credential (SCNC) student population in the U.S. is a whopping 40.4 million. While it may be well known that college enrollments pivoted to their lowest point during the pandemic, it’s appalling that we’ve added 1.4 million SCNC students between the years 2020 and 2021 –  a 3.6 percent rise from 39.0 million compared to the previous year. Further, the Gallup study on The State of Higher Education 2023 highlighted some key findings after studying thousands of Americans who started their postsecondary educational journey but never re-enrolled or completed it. The study was carried out on working adults in the age range of 25 to 59 years and therefore is insightful for corporates. 

Additionally, we have found that summer is a time when enrollments fall significantly among working adults. Be it due to work or family commitments or a lack in the number of valuable college courses available at this time – the reality of it is that many of these drop-outs do not re-enroll soon enough or at all. As always instead of dwelling on the problem, we want to throw light on the solutions.
