Brown, Katie – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
In today's economy, more than 80 percent of jobs require workers to have education or training beyond the high school level--making skills more important than ever before.

Caskey, John P. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
College-provided scholarships, or tuition discounts, are in the news. The National Association of College and University Business Officers recently estimated that the average discount for full-time, first-year undergraduates at private nonprofit colleges and universities hit 50 percent in the fall of 2017.

Baum, Sandy – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Tuition prices, as well as the living expenses students must cover, have risen rapidly while household incomes have grown slowly or even declined except for those at or near the top of the income distribution. As incomes have stagnated and the savings rate has declined, students have come to depend more and more on financial aid from federal and…

Turner, Sarah – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018

Steele, Patricia; Erisman, Wendy – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
One in six American adults--approximately 30-35 million individuals--were at one time enrolled in college but did not complete a degree or certificate. Higher education in the 21st century faces a series of changes with respect to college completion that require a shift in institutional culture and processes. Many colleges are responding to this…

Jones, Dennis P.; Johnstone, Sally M. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
With very few exceptions colleges and universities of all types--2-year and 4-year, public and private-- are feeling the fiscal pinch. They are caught in the vise of rising expectations and constrained revenues. Public institutions are operating in an environment in which state-level policy-makers press for increasing numbers of graduates,…

Castleman, Ben; Page, Lindsay – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)--which students must complete to qualify for most federal, state, and institutional financial aid--is a gateway to college through which many students must pass, particularly those from low- to moderate-income households (King, 2004; Kofoed, 2013). Yet given the complexity of the…

Kadamus, James A. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
When trustees, presidents, and senior college administrators meet, one topic dominates the conversation: how to keep education quality high and costs down. To keep quality high, college leaders need to have strong faculties and state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research. Quality counts but it also costs, and that is where the pressures…

The Pell grant program is the largest source of need-based federal financial aid available to low-income students, currently providing a maximum of $5500 in grants to undergraduate students.

Schulte, Sheila; Choudaha, Rahul – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2014
In this article, Sheila Schulte and Rahul Choudaha state that recruiting international students is costly but rewarding financially and academically, so the loss for an institution if these students are not retained is considerable.

Gasman, Marybeth; Collins, Heather – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2014
The Obama administration has some improbable critics: members of the Historically Black College and University (HBCU) community. What started out as carefully worded commentaries have given way to more direct criticisms and complaints about the administration's policies affecting HBCUs. Although some of these gripes can be attributed to…

Elliott, William – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2014
Given the increasing expectation that students should bear most of the college-cost burden, loans have been the largest form of financial aid since 1982, a shift that has been particularly hard on needy students. Loan-aversion has contributed to the access problem for these students, while facilitating more privileged students' ability to…
