Students, Finance and Completion

College completion is a not just an educational matter, but a financial one as well. To be sure, some students have difficulty earning good grades or advancing into desired majors.  But study after study links the ability of students to finance their college educations to their chances of completion.

The issues play out in different ways for students of various socioeconomic groups. But these issues matter at open access institutions that serve non-traditional students and competitive admissions colleges with residential student bodies. But college leaders are increasingly aware that a key part of their retention strategy must include a focus on students’ financial challenges.

This webcast will explore some of the ways that financial issues hinder student progress – and some of the strategies colleges and the government can use to help students.

Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman will lead a lively discussion on these topics on Tuesday, April 9th, at 2:00 pm ET
