Georgia officials are teaming up with the state's universities and technical colleges to get adults back in School.The "Go Back. Move Ahead." Campaign will help Georgians who completed some college to return and finish their degrees.

It's part of Governor Deal's "Complete College Georgia" initiative. The campaign will help returning students with scheduling and course selection.

"People are always learning and we want to make sure that we embrace that when they come back to schools," said Beth Brown, Albany Tech Prior Learning Assessment Coordinator. 

"We have to change, so that we'll be viable and I think that's what the Governor is encouraging us to do," Anthony Parker, Albany Tech President.

Education officials say 22% of the state's population started college, but never finished.
