Evaluating Student Outcomes at For-Profit Colleges

Kevin Lang, Russell Weinstein

NBER Working Paper No. 18201
Issued in June 2012

---- Acknowledgements -----

This topic was brought to our attention by Jesse Felix whose excellent undergraduate research opportunities project was the earliest use, of which we are aware, of the Beginning Post-Secondary Students survey to examine differences in financial and labor market outcomes of students at for-profit and other institutions. We regret that data access restrictions prevented him from working with us on this new project. We are grateful to participants in the Boston University empirical microeconomics workshop for helpful comments and suggestions. The usual caveat applies. The views expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
