Summary

In this policy brief, a study of 37 nations finds that nations with an up-front tuition policy like the one used in the U.S. lag in rates of postsecondary completion when compared with nations that have deferred, dual track, and no or only nominal tuition policies. The authors recommend exploring alternative tuition models to help achieve higher rates of postsecondary completion in the U.S.
