The cost of getting a college degree has been rising faster than health care. As a result, the role of financial aid in a student’s decision to attend—and stay in—school is more important than ever. Yet students are often challenged to take full advantage of the aid available. This is because the process of financial aid can be slow and complicated, which leads to frustration and, ultimately, a desire to give up. That’s where Blackboard comes in.
