My blog discusses the important and complex subjects of college completion, college success, student risk factors (for failing), college readiness, and academic preparation. I will explore the pieces of the college puzzle that heavily influence, if not determine, college success rates.
Communit College Students Do Not Apply For Student Aid
A new report stresses a variety of reasons for community colleges not applying for federal aid. The main reason is not the complicated FAFSA form
.Often community college students see themselves more as workers than as students because they attend college part time. Some do not think they are elible and others use work income to pay fees.Over 29% of students in community colleges with incomes less than 10k do not apply for federal aid. High schools could help by having all their seniors fill out Fafsa forms and better counseling. See report from the Federal Advisory Council on Student Financial Assistance
