College Completion Tool Kit,” produced by the Department of Education. The tool kit includes information on low-cost or no-cost strategies that states can use to boost completion.

For example:

* Aligning high school exit standards with college expectations. Forty percent of college students have to take remedial classes in college. It makes college more expensive, because it takes more time to finish. And it increases the likelihood students will dropout in college.
* Making it easier for students to transfer. Two out of three students transfer at least once. Arizona, for example, helps ensure transfer students don’t fall through the cracks by making sure introductory course credits transfer fully among all public colleges in the state.
* Linking state higher education funding to levels of or improvement in college completion. Right now, the vast majority of colleges get funded based on enrollment numbers, not success.
