Study Links Community College Bachelor's Programs to Declines in For-Profit Enrollment

More than 125 community colleges in over 20 states now offer bachelor’s degree programs to local students.

In one of the first studies of its kind, Johns Hopkins University’s Dennis Kramer II and the University of Florida’s Justin Ortagus set out to examine how those programs impacted enrollment at nearby colleges and universities in Florida.

Kramer and Ortagus join CPRE Knowledge Hub managing editor Keith Heumiller to discuss their findings, and some key implications for policymakers, school leaders and families in the wake of a national economic recession.
