 Title: Financial Aid Packages and College Enrollment Decisions: An Econometric Case Study Authors: Rouse, CeciliaLinsenmeier, David M.Rosen, Harvey Keywords: financial aidgrantsloansjobs Issue Date: 1-Nov-2001 Series/Report no.: Working Papers (Princeton University. Industrial Relations Section) ; 459 Abstract: We study the effects of a change in financial aid policy introduced by a Northeastern university in 1998. Prior to that time, the university s financial aid packages for lowincome students consisted of grants, loans, and campus jobs. After the change, the entire loan portion of the package for low-income students was replaced with grants. We find the program increased the likelihood of matriculation by low-income students by about 3 percentage points, although the effect is not statistically significant. The effect among low-income minority students was about twice that size and statistically significant at the 10 percent level.
