Abstract


Financial aid systems help make higher education available to all who can benefit. To “adjust” the existing financial aid system to make it more student-friendly and open doors currently closed to many part-time learners and students with the greatest financial challenges, state policy changes and greater private sector initiatives targeted at workforce can use creative strategies, including altering state-based programs, creating new learning tax incentives, coordinating employer-based aid, and distributing aid directly to students.
