In 2011, Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) launched a new Adult Career Pathways (ACP) initiative to enable more low-income adult students to access and succeed in career studies programs. Over its first three years, the ACP program grew rapidly to serve more than 1,000 adult studentswho consistently achieved high rates of college success and persistence towards a credential. The ACP program demonstrates that community colleges can successfully enroll and serve low-income adult students on a significant scale and maintain success rates.
