The data analysis isn’t finished, but the most compelling finding so far is the effect on students who needed financial aid to complete. Students who received need-based aid had incomes that were 23 percent higher five years after completion than their peers who didn’t receive need-based aid, Weber said. Those who didn’t need financial aid also saw a salary jump, but not as much.  The college will use the findings from the study to boost its marketing efforts and to make decisions about specific programs. “We believe that with some career programs, staying and earning credentials will pay off in the long run,” Weber said. When the data is analyzed, the college should be able to have solid evidence to prove that assumption.
