Like community colleges nationally, more than half (56%) of Nashville State Community College’s student body enroll part-time. Part-time students face different financial, social and academic challenges than traditional students. Colleges face unique challenges engaging part-time students to help them persist and succeed to degree completion. Part-time students have much to offer to their communities, and higher education policies (federal, state, and institutional) need to pivot to address their needs if they are to succeed.
