Report: Many College Dropouts Are More Than Halfway to a Degree
Allie Bdwell, National Association of Student Financial Administrators
Millions of college students, many of whom also have education loan debt, never complete their programs. A new report suggests nearly one in five of those students who do not graduate have three-quarters of the credits needed to finish.
Over the years, many colleges have turned to implementing some form of financial incentive to encourage students to take more credits each semester and graduate on time. Targeting student support services to at-risk students near the end of their programs also can help more leave with a college education.
