Complete 2 Compete

Complete 2 Compete is a state-wide initiative targeting adult-learners with some college, who wish to finish their college degree. “Approximately 31 million Americans have completed some college credit without earning a degree or credential. Almost 300,000 Mississippians who attended a public university or community college within the past 15 years have completed some college without earning a degree.” According to Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL).

The Complete 2 Compete initiative will allow adult-learners to explore the option to return to school. Ultimately, we want to:

  • Identify students who may be eligible to return

  • Address barriers that might prevent individuals from returning and completing

  • Identify incentives that community colleges and universities offer to assist adult learners

Interactive Complete 2 Compete site can be found at 

If you are interested in exploring your options to return to school or know someone who may find this helpful, please refer to the IHL web site and submit information at the bottom of the page
