A Comparison of the Influence of Debtload on the Persistence of Students at Public and Private Colleges.
Cofer, James; Somers, Patricia
Journal of Student Financial Aid, v30 n2 p39-58 Spr 2000
Used National Postsecondary Student Aid Study data to examine how debtload influenced undergraduate persistence decisions at public and private colleges. Tuition prices had a significant negative effect on persistence, though that effect decreased from 1987-93 in all cases. At every level, private school students were more sensitive to the effects of debtload than public school students, particularly in 1993. (SM)
