Making College More Affordable by Promoting Timely Graduation

One way to make college more affordable is simply to ensure your students graduate on time.

Reported by EAB, at Penn State University, their first-generation need-based students work 22 hours a week on average. These work requirements make it difficult to maintain a full course load, participate in additional extra-curricular academic experiences, and finish on time.

The takeaway? How do we make sure our enrollment coaches and academic advisors do a better job working with our students to map out their most cost-efficient path to graduation from day 1?
