This bill directs the governing board of a four-year public institution of higher education to develop a plan to achieve a six-year graduation rate of at least 70 percent by the 2022-2023 academic year for full-time students enrolled in a baccalaureate degree program regularly requiring eight semesters to complete. The plan will be submitted for approval to the Secretary of Higher Education by January 1, 2019. The bill stipulates that the governing board must establish a study committee to advise and make recommendations to the board on the plan to achieve the six-year graduation rate of at least 70 percent. The board may not submit the plan to the secretary prior to its review of the committee's recommendations. If the secretary approves the plan, the board is to transmit a copy of the approved plan to the New Jersey Presidents' Council, the Senate Higher Education Committee, and the Assembly Higher Education Committee. If the secretary does not approve the plan, the secretary will provide the board, in writing, with the reasons for the disapproval. The board is then required to develop a new plan and resubmit the plan to the secretary within 90 days.
