Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine whether the student financial aid programs administered through the Financial Aid Office at Oregon State University have achieved their objectives of accomplishing the goals of financial aid in higher education for Oregon community college (OCC) transfer students who receive financial aid. This study focused on the academic persistence of OCC transfer financial aid recipients by comparing their mean academic year grade point average, mean academic year credit hours earned, withdrawal rates, academic probation rates, academic suspension rates, fail term return rates, and graduation rates with OCC transfer students who did not apply for or receive student financial aid. In the comparison between financial aid recipients and nonfinancial aid recipients, pair-matching was used to control for the variables of sex, transfer grade point average, classification (grade level at transfer), and age. A second part of the study examined any differences in the financial aid in the packages awarded in the first year with respect to the seven measures of persistence noted above. It was concluded that financial aid recipients were as successful in persisting to graduation as students who did not receive financial aid. It was also concluded that no one type of aid or combination of financial aids was significantly more effective than another in student persistence to graduation.
