Attainment Goal: Progress Check
REACH NY has suggested that a 60% attainment goal by 2030 will be essential to keep the economy humming. That means 3/5 of adults statewide—6.5 million New Yorkers—need to earn a high-quality postsecondary credential (a certificate, a certification, or a degree) in less than a decade.
With Modern Campus, you can maximize the impact of your non-degree courses and programs—which you’ve already worked hard to create and polish—to meet this critical goal.
Current Attainment Rate: 53.6%
There’s much work to be done.
First, while the attainment rate is high, credential-holders tend to be congregated in a few counties, including New York City, Nassau, Albany, Tompkins/Ithaca, Westchester and Saratoga.
Nearly 500,000 New Yorkers need to earn a high-quality postsecondary credential in order to meet the 60% attainment goal needed for the economy to be successful.
This goal is attainable! 1.4 million New Yorkers have some college experience but haven’t earned a credential, and another 2.3 million New Yorkers have only their high school education under their belt.
Your Role in Supporting Student Opportunity
New York is an incredibly diverse state, with colleges and universities in each county supporting unique learner populations with different goals and opportunities on their horizons. As such, it’s critical to ensure each institution has the flexibility to deliver the experience their learners expect while also maintaining some level of consistency from campus-to-campus to ensure adherence or modern best practices and to support learner mobility.
After all, to help students build pathways to good jobs in sustainable careers, higher education institutions have to do more than create high-quality programming. The offerings have to launch quickly, and show clear ROI to students. What’s more, the actual registration and enrollment processes have to be seamless and intuitive, so that they mirror what students are used to experiencing.

Using Destiny One in the 2020 spring-summer term, we experienced a total enrollment growth of 10%.
