CLASP - policy solutions that work for low-income people

Abstract

Even after accounting for all financial aid, many low-income college students have thousands of dollars of
unmet need, even when they attend low-cost institutions such as community colleges. This need often leads students to drop out of college, or to work so many hours that it interferes with their attendance and success in classes. This is one of the factors that contribute to low rates of college completion, especially by low-income and other non-traditional students.
