Clearing the Hurdles: Helping Low-Income Students Get Into College

This event is scheduled for Wednesday, August 17, 2011, 2:00p.m. to 3:00p.m. Eastern time. Despite the push for more diversity on college campuses, low-income students are still underrepresented in higher education. To meet the nation’s goal of improving college completion, more supports are needed to help those students get into college. Yet college-going students from disadvantaged backgrounds face barriers—from understanding the application process, to filling out financial-aid forms, to covering fees. Learn about how the landscape has changed for low-income students and what policies could help improve access, and hear about innovative programs that are successfully walking students through the transition from high school to college.

Presenters:

Jennifer Engle, Director of Higher Education Practice and Policy, The Education Trust, Washington.

Traci Kirtley, Director of Programming and Evaluation, Admission Possible National, St. Paul, Minn.

Moderator:  Caralee Adams, contributing writer, Education Week.
