#YouCanGoBack at SMWC

Recognizing that economic and personal circumstances can often interrupt a college education in progress, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College supports the “You Can Go Back” initiative by the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. This initiative is an effort to reengage more than 750,000 Hoosier adults who have college credit by providing pathways and incentives for degree completion. Indiana’s goal is to increase the percentage of Hoosiers with education beyond high school to 60 percent by 2025.

Many may have left for a number of reasons – financial concerns, work obligations or family responsibilities. The initiative advocates for financial assistance, flexibility and seamless transfer policies – all of which Woods Online at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College offers. Read more details >
