Metz, George W.
Journal of Student Financial Aid, v31 n3 p21-33 Fall 2001
Investigated the impact of student characteristics and financial aid awards on degree completion rates of 2-year college students. Found that less than one-third obtained their degree, less than one-tenth of completers had a high school GPA of less than 2.0, federal loans and work study were positive predictors of degree completion, and federal Pell grants were not.
