Post-secondary education and the choice to attend a proprietary school
Proprietary schools have been entering the educational market at a rapid pace. These proprietary institutions have been student focused and student centered, enrolling an alarming rate of students. Non-traditional students are typically the students who attend proprietary schools. This study examined students' experiences with attending a proprietary school, including the reasons for their choice, their understanding of other options, and any persons who assisted them with making their choice, and those who helped guide them through the process, such as making application to the university and applying for financial aid.
