Adult Promise Program: a Pilot Design Template for States

Adult Promise Program: a Pilot Design Template for States

The purpose of this document is to assist states interested in implementing a “promise-type” aid program specific to meeting the needs of adult students. It is intended to serve as a playbook to guide states through the implementation and pilot year of such a program. Because SHEEO’s members are the executive directors of the statewide governing and coordinating boards of higher education, this design template focuses on the state-level levers that SHEEO agencies can utilize to implement new policies or programs. With that in mind, it is clear that successful implementation of an adult promise program also requires buy-in from and collaboration with postsecondary institutions as well as other state agencies and key policy makers. This document offers suggestions to maximize input from a wide spectrum of stakeholders.
