BFA Strategies

Five strategies to support low-income students: overview

Beyond Financial Aid (BFA) includes five core strategies based on emerging research from partners and institutions across the country. The basic premise of BFA is that, to meet student needs, campus leadership must clearly, intentionally, and consistently convey a clear vision about the importance of student success. Institutions should regularly and systematically analyze data with a focus on goals for improving the retention and completion of low-income students. Evidence-based supports should be organized and aligned around those needs. BFA is designed to support colleges and universities in that work.
