Agenda:

8:30     Check in and Breakfast provided free for registered attendees!

9:00      Welcome and opening remarks
            Sue McMillian, President and CEO, TG

9:15      Deferred Costs, Delayed Credentials: Debt and Community College Transfer Students
Carla Fletcher and Chris Fernandez, TG Research Analysts, TG Research and Analysis
Although it seems contrary to conventional wisdom, community college students who transferred to universities ended up borrowing, on average, about as much as students who started their higher education at the university.  Savings from the time spent at a lower-cost community college vanish as transfer students borrow more and receive less grant and institutional aid compared to their native student counterparts.

10:30    Break

10:45    Innovations in Financial Aid:  Disbursing Aid Like A Paycheck
Michelle Ware,  Operations Associate, Young Adults and Post-secondary Education, MDRC

Steve Head, President North Harris College, Lone Star College District
Learn from those involved in the center of the crisis what went right and what things they would do differently should it happen again. And learn simple suggestions that will help colleges effectively deal with similar situations and possibly save lives as well as the reputation of the institution.

The Fast Pass to the First Day of Class is a collaborative effort from the Division of Student Affairs at South Texas College that works to help students understand the admission, financial aid, and payment process. Students receive first day of class success tips, and are introduced to the student portal to ensure their access.
