LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The Nevada System of Higher Education has launched a statewide campaign to help thousands of non-traditional students return to class to finish their degree.
The "Don't Wait-Graduate!" campaign encourages former students to re-enroll and finish their academic programs. Specialized advisors, dubbed re-entry concierges, are on hand to help students with the process.
Television and radio ads are airing through Dec. 18, encouraging students to get re-started by visiting the web site EducateNevada.org.
The campaign is completely funded by a grant from the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education.
It targets students who have completed at least 30 credits toward an associate degree or at least 90 credits toward a bachelor's degree.
That group includes about 8,300 people previously enrolled at a Nevada institution but didn't attend this past year.
