Community-College Students Need Better Financial Advising, Survey Finds
Hoover, Eric
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n13 pA19 Nov 2008
All the tutoring in the world cannot save students who run short of the money they need to pay for college. This year's Community College Survey of Student Engagement affirms as much. In the survey, known as Cessie, nearly half (45 percent) of respondents cited a lack of finances as a hardship that would likely cause them to withdraw from classes or leave college--more than twice as many (19 percent) as those who cited a lack of academic preparation. Findings from the Cessie survey suggest that institutions must do more to familiarize prospective students with financial aid and to steer enrolled students through the complex application process.
