On the Verge: Costs and Tradeoffs Facing Community College Students
Cochrane, Debbie; Szabo-Kubitz, Laura
Institute for College Access & Success
"On the Verge: Costs and Tradeoffs Facing Community College Students" documents California community college students' struggles to cover college expenses beyond tuition, their experiences with financial aid, and the troubling tradeoffs they face when available resources do not stretch far enough. Consistent with a growing body of national research showing that students' ability to pay for non-tuition costs is central to their academic progress and success, the report includes results and personal stories from The Institute for College Access & Success' (TICAS') survey of thousands of California students, as well as key facts about community college students' costs, aid, and outcomes both nationally and in California.
