Getting ready to help students fill out the FAFSA?
The Department of Education released a list this week highlighting the eight steps that need to be followed when filing for federal student aid. And included in the article is an important reminder: Students can — and should — list multiple colleges on their FAFSA.
Prospective first-generation college students cite high educational aspirations as 10th graders, but take longer to enroll in college and are less likely than their peers to earn a degree.
Those findings are included in a new research brief from the US Department of Education’s Institute of Educational Sciences. The report uses 10 years of data collected from a nationally representative sample of students who were high school sophomores in 2002.
Just-released data from US Citizenship and Immigration Services provides more information about the young people currently enrolled in the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Students who earned their bachelor’s degree from an online for-profit college are less likely to find success in the job market, research shows.
Such applicants were 22 percent less likely than their counterparts from non-selective public institutions to receive a call back when applying for positions that required a business degree, according to a study published in 2016 by the American Economic Review.
Dating and obtaining a driver’s license have long been American rites of passage, but a new study suggests that today’s teens seem less interested in meeting those milestones than prior generations.
A study published this week in the journal Child Development showed a sharp decline over the past decade in the percentage of adolescents who date or drive. The share of teens who have tried alcohol or held a paying job has also decreased.
Interested in exploring educational options outside the US?
NACAC’s newly updated Guide to International University Admission features country profiles and admission how-tos for 11 destinations that have proven popular among US students seeking full degrees outside their home country.
President Trump announced this week that the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will end in six months.
Since 2012, DACA has provided deportation relief to undocumented youth who came to the country before the age of 16, as long as they met certain criteria.
NACAC was among several education organizations to speak out against Trump’s decision. In a statement released on Tuesday, the association said the move to eliminate DACA was a “regressive step that hurts many of America’s brightest, most vulnerable youth.”
