Financial Aid Research Study

Financial Aid Research Study

West Hills College is working with a research organization called MDRC to learn how financial aid can best assist students with managing their finances and succeeding in college.  As part of this study, West Hills College will share your student records data with MDRC beginning in the 2016-17 academic year.  These data include personal identifiers, such as name and contact information, enrollment, credits attempted and completed, grades, and financial aid awarded and disbursed. Information that MDRC collects for the study will be kept confidential and will be used for research purposes only.  If you have questions about the study, or you don't want to be contacted or your data to be shared, please email ALAP@mdrc.org and include your student ID number.
