For Arizonans who weren’t able to finish college and obtain their degrees, there is a new pathway. Before leaving office in January, Governor Doug Ducey signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a state affiliate of the online Western Governors University to support working learners and the estimated 600,000 Arizonans that have some college experience but no degree. The flexible and affordable “upskilling” effort will aid the 79 percent of Arizona students who are employed full-time while enrolled in degree programs. Learning opportunities are available through Arizona’s public colleges and universities. wgu.edu
