Free to Finish - Matt Reed, Inside Higher Ed

I tip my cap to Washington State for one of the smartest low-cost ideas for college completion I’ve seen in a long time. It’s in the process of passing a “Free to Finish” bill, by which former students who left college within 15 or fewer credits of the finish line a chance to finish for free. Students have to have been out of college for at least three years. This must be their first degree -- sorry, grad students -- and I assume the college in question must have been accredited. From the way the Washington Post piece is written, it sounds like the original college(s) can be anywhere in America. Details matter, yes, but from here it looks like a terrific idea. https://www.insidehighered.com/blogs/confessions-community-college-dean/free-finish
