Another wave of students may opt out of college this fall

Published

As the delta variant drives new Covid cases across country, the pandemic’s economic impact continues to weigh heavily on college enrollment.

Now, with another class of undergraduates set to start classes in the fall, families are once again struggling with the cost.

Nearly two-thirds of parents, or 63%, said their child’s post-high school plans have returned to what they were before the global pandemic, according to a report by Discover Student Loans.

But of those who have changed their college plans, most said they will now go to a school closer to home, attend an online university or go to a less-expensive alternative.

Research shows these students are primarily from low-income backgrounds, students of color and first-generation students — also hardest hit by Covid.

Half of the students who are not attending college or enrolling in a career and technical education program would have attended if they had received adequate financial aid, according to another recent report by the Horatio Alger Association.

Four in 10 students need more financial aid than they did before the pandemic, and 1 in 7 students who did not previously require aid need it now, the nonprofit organization found.

Of the students who are pursuing further education and received a scholarship, 70% said it was a deciding factor in their ability to enroll.

“Cost was the No. 1 problem I had.

“Cost was the No. 1 problem I had, because I knew my family wouldn’t be able to help,” said Mariah Jimenez, 18, a recent high school graduate from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

“All of senior year, I was scared I wouldn’t have enough to pay for college,” she said.  

When Jimenez found out she was a recipient of a $25,000 scholarship through Horatio Alger, “I cried,” she said.

In September, Jimenez will begin her freshman year at Southern Utah University and plans to study nursing. “I am extremely excited,” she said.

When Covid brought the economy to a standstill, one-quarter of last year’s high school graduates delayed their college plans, according to a separate survey from Junior Achievement and Citizens, largely because their parents or guardians were less able to provide financial support.

Although about 40% of parents said their ability to help pay has improved since this time last year, 63% remain concerned about having enough money for higher education, Discover also found.

The vast majority of students and their families still say college is well worth it, despite the rising cost. And yet, it is increasingly out of reach.

Tuition and fees plus room and board for a four-year private college averaged $50,770 in the 2020-21 school year; at four-year, in-state public colleges, it was $22,180, according to the College Board, which tracks trends in college pricing and student aid

When adding in other expenses, the total tab can be more than $70,000 a year for undergraduates at some private colleges or even out-of-state students attending four-year public schools.

“If we want more students from diverse backgrounds to consider furthering their education, we must ensure that they have access to the necessary resources to help pay for it,” said Terrence Giroux, executive director of the Horatio Alger Association.

On Thursday, the U.S. Department of Education said it will provide an additional $3.2 billion in emergency grants to help under-resourced institutions develop programs to engage disconnected students, expand mental health services and improve retention rates.

The current model is unsustainable, according to Lynn Pasquerella, president of the Association of American Colleges and Universities.

“I hope this provides the impetus for reimagining higher education and addresses the racial and economic segregation,” she added. “I don’t think the answer is to deny access to those at the lowest economic rungs.”

A pedicab driver was killed in Midtown Manhattan after the driver of a car rammed into his vehicle, ran him over and fled the scene.

The deadly collision happened around 11:15 p.m. Friday, as the pedicab was transporting three female passengers on East 42 Street and Madison Avenue, police said.

As Ibrokhim Azizov was peddling the vehicle, he was rear-ended by a 2017 Toyota Tacoma, causing him to be ejected from the pedicab onto 42 Street, according to the NYPD.

The driver of the Toyota then ran over the Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, man and hightailed it down Madison Avenue, cops said.

A 46-year-old woman and two 14-year-old girls suffered minor injuries and were treated at Bellevue Hospital, where Azizov was pronounced dead, according to police.

Police found the Toyota parked in front of 200 East 32 St. a short time later, and police hit-and-run driver had already fled the vehicle and was still on the loose, detectives said.

Heim’s second 2-run HR in 10th lifts Rangers over Mariners

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jonah Heim hit his second two-run homer of the game in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Texas Rangers a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night.

Heim’s homer came off Diego Castillo (2-5), who was acquired Thursday from Tampa Bay and hadn’t given up a run in his previous 11 outings.

Spencer Patton (1-1) earned the win after giving up the tying run in the ninth inning and the then-go-ahead run in the 10th.

J.P. Crawford singled to score Tom Murphy from second in the 10th in Texas’ first save situation after closer Ian Kennedy was traded to Philadelphia in a multi-player deal on Friday afternoon. Ty France led off the Mariners’ ninth with a homer.

Heim led off Texas in the 10th with Andy Ibanez on second.

Heim also hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning off Tyler Anderson to tie the score 2-2. Nathaniel Lowe gave Texas a 3-2 lead in the sixth with an opposite-field single to left off Tyler Anderson, scoring Adolis Garcia, who doubled with a shot that struck the left-field chalk behind third base.

Kyle Seager gave Seattle a 2-0 lead four batters into the game with a two-run homer off Taylor Hearn after what appeared to be an inning-ending double play on a one-out grounder to third base by France. But second baseman Ibanez took his right foot off the bag before catching the throw from Charlie Culberson and relaying to first base, keeping the inning alive with Mitch Haniger at second. Seager then hit a 2-2 slider into the right-field seats.

Hearn was removed after retiring the first two batters in the fourth after 52 pitches, two over his career high, in his fourth career start.

Lowe’s hit ended the day for Anderson, who made his Seattle debut after being acquired Wednesday from Pittsburgh. Anderson, who retired Texas’ first nine batters, allowed three runs on six hits and no walks.

SHORT HOPS

Home-plate umpire Adrian Johnson left the game in the fourth inning with a hip flexor. Second-base umpire Laz Diaz, the crew chief, took Johnson’s place and the game continued with three umpires. … Rangers RHP Spencer Howard, considered the primary prospect acquired in the Philadelphia trade, joined the active roster. RHP Drew Anderson, also in the trade, pitched three scoreless innings. … Texas signed six draftees, topped by eighth-round LHP Larson Kindreich. Second-round OF Adam Zavala remains unsigned going into Sunday’s signing deadline.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Mariners: LHP Justus Sheffield (forearm strain) will probably throw a bullpen session early next week before starting a rehab assignment.

UP NEXT

Mariners LHP Marco Gonzales (3-5, 5.48 ERA) allowed seven runs in 3 1/3 innings against the Rangers in a loss at Seattle on July 3.

Rangers RHP Mike Foltynewicz (2-10, 6.11) has allowed the most homers in the majors (31) and has the third-worst opponents’ batting average among big-league qualifiers (.281). His ERA in four July starts was 10.42.
