Displaced workers may not be fully aware of the federal financial aid and enrollment opportunities available to them. Indeed, incomplete knowledge of financial aid availability and eligibility during the recent recession may have limited the extent(More)
Cyclical contractions in labor market opportunities may lead to increased demand for post-secondary education as the opportunity cost of enrollment falls during bad economic times. However, decisions to enroll also depend on the capacity to finance college and it is likely that credit constraints will be exacerbated in bad economic times and among workers(More)
