Noncredit Mobility

Last Updated 12/11/2023

Refers to economic mobility for learners who start their education and career journeys in noncredit programs. Noncredit programs are typically shorter-term training opportunities that enable learners to gain specific workforce skills and qualifications; however, they usually do not count toward Associate or Bachelor’s degree requirements and this raises concern about the economic mobility learners experience who have completed noncredit programs. Factors often studied in determining noncredit mobility are (1) access to family-wage jobs and (2) access to further educational opportunities, especially noncredit to credit pathways.
