Changes in Financial Aid and Student Enrollment at Historically Black Colleges and Universities after the Tightening of PLUS Credit Standards. Stated Briefly. REL 2015-088

This "Stated Briefly" report is a companion piece that summarizes the results of another report of the same name. The purpose of this study was to examine the changes in financial aid and student enrollment at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) after the U.S. Department of Education increased the credit history requirements necessary to obtain Parental Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS). Results indicate that PLUS loans declined substantially at HBCUs in 2012/13, and the decreases were not fully replaced by other types of federal financial aid. HBCUs also experienced larger declines in enrollment than other institutions in 2012/13, corresponding to the larger decline in PLUS recipients at HBCUs. Enrollment declines at HBCUs were especially large for first-year students. Nationwide enrollment decreased more for Black students than for students in other groups.
