Atlantic Cape is among 11 colleges recently selected by the American Association of Community Colleges to participate in the Plus 50 Completion Strategy. The colleges involved with the initiative will strive to increase the number of students age 50 and older, especially those with some prior college credits, to complete credentials and degrees that will help them get hired.

The new completion effort builds on AACC’s Plus 50 Initiative, which has devoted the last three years to helping colleges improve services and support for baby boomers. For additional information, contact Millie McGovern at 609-343-5602 or cmcgover@atlantic.edu.
