The Math and the Path: Enhanced Advising and Postsecondary Progress

Grant Year: 2022


Steven Hemelt and Samantha Raynor will evaluate the effectiveness of a program designed to increase college completion rates at a large public university. They will field a randomized controlled trial to test whether an intervention that offers enhanced advising on academics and financial aid to students who are halfway through their college experience can increase their rate of degree attainment. The project’s findings will appear in a paper, a policy brief, and a series of briefings for university administrators.
