House Education & Labor Committee Hearing on Higher Education Non-Completion

The House Committee on Education and Labor, Higher Education and Workforce Investment Subcommittee held a hearing on “The Cost of Non-Completion: Improving Student Outcomes in Higher Education” in which the Committee discussed barriers to enter postsecondary education and for completion:

  • Food/housing insecurity

  • Nontraditional students who have to work/take care of family

  • Changing majors which can expend Pell

  • Students short by a few hundred dollars, therefore, cannot graduate

  • “Hold-your-spot” enrollment deposit

  • FAFSA verification
