This measure represents those community college students who left before completing a certificate or degree or transferring to a four-year college but nonetheless made significant academic progress while enrolled. The Achieving the Dream initiative recognizes those students who had accumulated at least 30 credits within their first two years of enrollment but who stopped out without completing a credential or transferring. Some of these students may have achieved their educational goals (such as acquiring specific job skills), while others would be well on their way toward completion or transfer should they return to community college.
