Title:Promise lost: College-qualified students who don't enroll in college
Organization:Institute for Higher Education Policy
Short Description:Improving access to college for underserved students requires policies informed by the perspectives that counselors and college-qualified students have on barriers to college access. To contribute to a better understanding of these perspectives, the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) carried out two national surveys, one of college-qualified high school graduates and another of high school counselors.
Annotation:Improving access to college for underserved students requires policies informed by the perspectives that counselors and college-qualified students have on barriers to college access. To contribute to a better understanding of these perspectives, the Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) carried out two national surveys, one of college-qualified high school graduates and another of high school counselors. Results from the two surveys pointed to the need for policy intervention or further research in the following five categories: college cost and the availability of aid, the steps to enroll in college, opportunity cost, economic mobility, and transparency about the amount and types of financial aid available.
