Journal of College Student Development, v51 n5 p481-495 Sep-Oct 2010
This longitudinal, mixed-method study explores how the financial burdens of college attendance impact student involvement and experiences throughout the first year of college. The student participants at 4 Midwestern, public universities were engaged to describe their experiences throughout their first year as they navigated a complex and expensive system. The policy recommendations of this study implicate many functional areas and levels at the university including academic and student affairs. (Contains 1 table.)
