The Determination of the Financial Needs of Adult Part-Time Students in Postsecondary Education. Final Report, Volume I.
Bowman, James L.; Van Dusen, William D.
Anticipating an increase in the determinations of financial need and program eligibility for adult students, a review was undertaken of the current eligibility for aid of adults, the procedures used in determining their financial need, and the policy issues that might arise as the numbers of adults seeking and obtaining financial assistance increase. Volume One of the final report covers: eligibility criteria and the adult learner; determination of adult learners' financial need; administrative issues in aid for adults; some policy alternatives (such as student expense budgets, contribution calculations, subsidy of living expenses, and alternatives for resolving administrative inequities); and an agenda for further study. Appendices include need analysis systems prior to the uniform methodology, the uniform methodology, selected references, and simulations of some possible alternatives. (Author/MSE)
