The 60x30 Initiative is intended to assist adult learners who would like to complete their college degree.
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's 60x30TX Higher Education Plan contains four broad goals:
The Overarching Goal: 60x30 Educated Population
By 2030, at least 60 percent of Texans ages 25-34 will have a certificate or degree.
The Second Goal: Completion
By 2030, at least 550,000 students in that year will complete a certificate, associate, bachelor’s, or master’s from an institution of higher education in Texas.
The Third Goal: Marketable Skills
By 2030, all graduates from Texas public institutions of higher education will have completed programs with identified marketable skills.
The Fourth Goal: Student Debt
By 2030, undergraduate student loan debt will not exceed 60 percent of first-year wages for graduates of Texas public institutions.
