Degrees When Due graduation cap 

Degrees when Due is a completion and equity initiative from the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) to help states and colleges increase degree attainment among the "some college, no degree" population. Missouri has been selected to join 20 other states to learn best practices for engaging students who have stopped out.
