Program Helps Older Texans Go Back to School

AARP has teamed up with the Graduate! Network to let older Texans know that it is never too late to return to school. 

The Texas Comebackers program encourages older adults to complete their education so they can compete for better-paying jobs. It helps match adults with resources in their area or online. 

Opportunities include obtaining a high school GED, a college certificate, or an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. 

In Texas, more than 6 million adults over the age of 45 have started work on, but not earned, a college diploma. Another 1.8 million or more could benefit from completing a GED or a postsecondary credential. Learn more at
