Program Statistics and Annual Report
Approximately 28 percent of Idahoans have some college, but no degree. In 2010, the Board set a goal that 60 percent of Idaho citizens between the ages of 25 and 34 would have a post-secondary degree or certificate by the year 2020, Complete College Idaho. Last year, 42 percent of Idahoans in that age range had degrees or certificates. The Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies is a degree completion option that complements the vision of this plan.
