Gladieux, Lawrence; Perna, Laura
National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education
This report examines the experiences of students who borrow to finance their education, but do not complete their postsecondary programs. Using the latest comprehensive data, this report compares borrowers who drop out with other groups of students, and provides recommendations on policies and programs that would better prepare, support, and guide students-especially low-income students-in completing their degrees. Two appendixes are included: (1) Data Sources and Definitions; and (2) Source Tables. (Contains 18 figures, 4 tables, and 20 endnotes.)
