The Effects of Changes in Student Aid Policy on Persistence: A Case Study of a Private University.
St. John, Edward P.
Journal of Student Financial Aid, v28 n1 p7-18 Win 1998
A study investigated the effects of changes in institutional aid strategies on student persistence, exploring the implications of increased reliance on loans at a private university. Increases in grants and loans appeared to improve student persistence. However, students' increased loan burden should be considered. The study also suggests that new models can assess effects of student aid policy changes. (CH)
