Higher ed researchers discuss key issues and their own work | Inside Higher Ed | College Access and Success | Scoop.it

Like many scholarly meetings, the annual conference of the Association for the Study of Higher Education is a mish-mash of styles and subject matter -- symposiums framed around theories ("Latent Class Analysis in Higher Education"), policy-oriented sessions designed to produce practical solutions ("Studying Study Abroad: Policy Relevant Research for Improved Participation, Programs and Outcomes"), and many discussions focused on subgroups of students ("Access, Experience, and Persistence of Military Veterans at Four-Year Institutions") or other groups ("The Experiences and Challenges of Black Female Faculty at Predominantly White Institutions").

Hannah's curator insight, March 26, 2013 3:46 PM

My thoughts:

As I read through this article, I still found it hard to truly understand college financial aid. There are so many things that I have to know and understand to be able to successfully go through college without falling into deep debt. I realized that one small, bad choice could cause an enormous problem. This article gave a guide and tips to help others understand what steps to take in order to make the best choices. It was valuable to me because I had never really thought about how important payments are for college until I read this. It made me thankful that I chose to start off at a community college and transfer, because I know that I'm not going through this hard time managing my money.
