The Chronicle of Higher Education (April 15, 2005) reports that “College Dropouts Face Loan Hardships”  the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education released a report that “examines the experiences of students who borrow to finance their education, but do not complete their postsecondary programs. Using the latest comprehensive data, this report compares borrowers who drop out with other groups of students, and provides recommendations on policies and programs that would better prepare, support, and guide students-especially low-income students-in completing their degrees”.
