Title: The Impact of Emergency Financial Assistance: An Effort to Help Students
Wednesday, November 15th, 2017
This poster reports the results of an exploratory analysis of the emergency financial support and will examine its impact on student persistence, retention, and completion. Desired outcomes include successfully finishing the semester with passing marks, enrolling in the next semester or completion. As defined by NVCC, student persistence is defined as completing classes with a Pass (in a Pass/Fail course) or a C- or higher (in a letter graded course). Retention is defined as enrollment in a subsequent semester and completion is defined as completion through transfer or earning a degree or certificate. Socio-demographic information was also collected.
