Completion Grants

Based on retention grants in use at several member institutions, the UIA launched a three-year completion grants initiative to provide assistance to students approaching graduation but facing financial hurdles restricting their ability to enroll, persist, and subsequently complete their degrees.

Learning and Impact Highlights

This project has resulted in campus-level changes to drop for nonpayment policies and registration holds; campus efforts to centralize emergency aid information and application materials, increased coordination across student success units to identify and support students in need, and has catalyzed additional campus fundraising for completion grant resources.
