|Title:||Do no-loan policies change the matriculation patterns of low income students? |
|Authors:||Waddell, Glen R.|

|Abstract:||We empirically examine whether there is discernable variation in the matriculation patterns of low-income students at public flagship institutions in the United States around changes in institutional financial-aid policies that target resident, low-income students with need-based aid. While enrollment responses cannot be attributed to these programs, we do find that institutions that introduce income-targeted aid subsequently enroll financially needier and geographically more-distant students. These findings imply that improved access may actually displace some needy students in favor of others.|
