The authors propose five key questions all policy-makers and higher education advocates should consider when crafting a college promise plan. The research suggests that time-to-degree is an essential issue to tackle when addressing college affordability problems. Given that time to degree is a function of college preparation, access, and affordability, the authors suggest all of these areas must be addressed in tandem in order to design a quality college promise program.
