Title:Subprime opportunity: The unfulfilled promise of for-profit colleges and universities
Source:http://www.edtrust.org/sites/edtrust.org/files/...
Date:2010
Organization:The Education Trust
Short Description:This report, the tenth in a series on college graduation rates, examines how high costs combined with low graduation rates at for-profit institutions dim the dreams of too many students who place their trust – and their futures – in the hands of these companies.
Annotation:The report uses 2008 data on for-profits available from College Results Online, a unique Web-based tool that allows the public to view student success rates at four-year institutions across the country. These data show that while the six-year graduation rate among first-time, full-time freshmen seeking bachelor’s degrees at for-profit colleges is just 22 percent nationwide, success rates vary widely across those systems.
