CCNFinishing the Last Lap: Experimental Evidence on Strategies to Increase Attainment for Students Near College Completion
This journal article from the College Completion Network's University of Virginia research team reports results from the team's study examining a multi-year, large-scale experimental intervention (a text message-based advising program) conducted across five states and 20 broad-access public colleges and universities to support students who are late in their college career but still at risk of not graduating. The findings suggest low-cost nudge interventions may be insufficient for addressing barriers to completion among students who have made considerable academic progress.
