The Influence of Job Prospects on Student Debt Levels of Traditional and Adult Undergraduates.
Flint, Thomas A.
Journal of Student Financial Aid, v28 n2 p7-28 Spr 1998
Study investigated academic, social, attitudinal, and behavioral influences on student borrowing, using a sample from a national longitudinal study, with attention to labor market data, in predicting student borrowing behavior. Results show substantial differences between dependent and independent students in attitudes toward loans and debt levels. Acceptability of loans hinges largely on whether students perceive another alternative to reduce college costs. (Author/MSE)
