NCCCS Data Inquiry Presentation to State Board of Community Colleges

  1. 1. Residency Determination Service Data Analysis for the NC Association of Community College Presidents Presentation June 13, 2018
  2. 2. 2 6.8.18 Key Definitions and Assumptions: • This analysis includes all students requesting an Initial Consideration between January 1, 2017 and January 1, 2018 whether applying to a North Carolina Community College (NCCCS), University of North Carolina institution (UNC), or North Carolina private or independent college or university (NCICU). • This analysis is based on a student’s Initial Consideration (first experience) through RDS. A student’s final classification is not reflected in this report. Therefore, those students who initially received a non- resident classification may have subsequently received a resident classification through a Reconsideration or Appeal. • Geographic region, age, gender, and student experience data were based on 289,142 students who started an Online Interview. • RDS does not ask a student to provide their race or ethnicity when completing a request for classification therefore, ethnicity and race data was pulled from 125,448 NCCCS admission applications. • Resident: Students classified as Resident completed the RDS Online Interview as presented to them and received a Resident classification or qualified for the Active Duty Military benefit. • Non-Resident: Students classified as Non-Resident included students who completed the RDS Online Interview as presented to them and received a Non-Resident classification, and students who confirmed they did not want to be considered for residency. NCCCS campuses require a student to complete RDS even if they live outside of North Carolina and/or do not want to be considered for residency. • Did Not Finish: Students classified as Did Not Finish (DNF) are students who began the Interview, stopped at some point during the Interview, and never returned to finish.
  3. 3. 3 6.8.18 The questions outlined in this document are the questions posed to the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority (NCSEAA) in the February 15, 2018 NCACCP Request for Data Analysis Memorandum. 1. What are the most common questions where people stop during the Interview (and do not return to finish)? RDS analyzed the user experience for 289,142 students who received classifications of Resident, Non-Resident, and those who Did Not Finish (DNF) the RDS Online Interview between January 1, 2017 and January 1, 2018. Of the 289,142 students, 6.31% of students Did Not Finish the RDS Online Interview. RDS identified where each age group of students most commonly stopped in the Interview and therefore, did not receive a classification. Student age was divided into three ranges: under 18, 18-23, and 24 and older. These age ranges were used since the RDS Online Interview presents different questions to students depending on these age ranges when completing the Interview. The detailed breakdown for each age group is listed in Appendix B and reflects the top 10 questions on which students stopped during the Online Interview and did not return. The top ten questions were not the same for each age group; however, there were seven common stopping points across all three age groups. Three of the seven common stopping points occur before a student is presented with specific domiciliary questions related to tax, vehicle or employment information. Table # 1
  4. 4. 4 6.8.18 As noted in the table above, the largest percentage of students stopped when presented with dependency status questions. Dependency status questions are similar across all age groups although students under age 18 have a few additional questions specific to their circumstances. Dependency Questions - Under Age 18 • Are you a court appointed emancipated minor? • Are you a ward of the state? • Does someone other than your parent have legal guardianship of you? • Are you married? • Are one or both of your parents living? • Do your parents provide 50% or more of your total cost of living? Total cost of living means the cost of your food, clothing, shelter, transportation, school or college tuition, and other incidental costs of living added together. Dependency Questions – Ages 18-23 • Are you now, or have you ever been, a Ward of the State? If you were a Ward of the State but have been adopted, select no. • Are you married? • Are one or both of your parents living? • Do your parents provide 50% or more of your total cost of living? Total cost of living means the cost of your food, clothing, shelter, transportation, school or college tuition, and other incidental costs of living added together. Dependency Questions – Ages 24+ • Are you married? • Are one or both of your parents living? • Do your parents provide 50% or more of your total cost of living? Total cost of living means the cost of your food, clothing, shelter, transportation, school or college tuition, and other incidental costs of living added together. Also considered were the questions where most students (by volume) ended their RDS Online Interview. It is important to note that some of the questions do not impact certain age groups. For example, any questions regarding financial self-sufficiency are never asked of students ages 24 and older who are considered to be independent. The questions in the table (2) are listed as they are presented to the student. The data is summarized into three defined sections where students end their Interview and do not return. Section 1 identifies that 48.62% of students never complete the initial questions (1-3 in table) in the Online Interview. Section 2 indicates that 25.89% (4-7 in table) stop at some point during the domiciliary specific questions for either themselves or their parents. Lastly, Section 3 indicates that 15.95% (8-10 in table) stop at some point after claiming to be financially self-sufficient.

What are the demographics of people who do not complete the Interview? RDS reviewed age, gender, ethnicity, race and geographic region for students who Did Not Finish the RDS Online Interview. Of the 6.31% who Did Not Finish the Interview, the majority of students were between the ages of 18 and 23 and female. Table # 3 6.31% 4.77% 8.40% 4.65% 81.57% 86.35% 76.13% 77.66% 12.12% 8.88% 15.47% 17.69% TOTAL < 18 (41,663) 18-23 (134,929) 24+ (112,550) CLASSIFICATION AND DID NOT FINISH BY AGE ALL STUDENTS (289,142) Did Not Finish Resident Non-Resident
  6. 6. 6 6.8.18 Of the age 18-23 students who Did Not Finish RDS (11,073), 47.35% (5,245) ended their Interview before they were presented with domiciliary specific questions, 20.98% (2,325) ended their Interview when asked domiciliary specific questions, and 20.92% (2,648) ended their Interview when asked about income during financial self-sufficiency. Table # 4 The second demographic considered when analyzing students who Did Not Finish the RDS Online Interview was gender. Gender showed minimal difference in terms of students who started the RDS Online Interview and did not return. Table # 5 Residents, 81.57% Non-Residents, 12.12% 2,057 (11.28%)11,073 (60.70%) 5,113 (28.03%) Did Not Finish, 6.31% DID NOT FINISH DETAIL BY AGE GROUP ALL STUDENTS (289,142) DNF (<18) DNF (18-23) DNF (24+) 39.03% 60.97% 37.95% 62.05% MALE FEMALE STUDENTS WHO DID NOT FINISH (DNF) BY GENDER (18,243 STUDENTS) Total (289,142) Did Not Finish (18,243)
  7. 7. 7 6.8.18 A third demographic considered was race and ethnicity for students who did not complete RDS. This set of data is the only data in this document which is NCCCS specific. RDS does not ask a student to provide their race or ethnicity when completing a request for classification therefore, ethnicity and race data was pulled from 125,448 NCCCS admission applications. The total number of students who Did Not Finish RDS is 18,243. The total number of NCCCS admission applications started by students who Did Not Finish RDS is 5,206. If a student submitted more than one admission application, the student is included more than once in the count. The race listed as Multiple recognizes students who identified with more than one race on their admission application(s). Table # 6 Race Did Not Finish RDS % Did Not Finish White 1,996 38.34% Black or African American 1,781 34.21% Did Not Specify 1,010 19.40% Multiple 254 4.88% Asian 84 1.61% American Indian or Alaska Native 74 1.42% Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander 7 0.13% Total: 5,206 4.16% The NCCCS admission applications request ethnicity data only on Hispanic or Latino students. The question posed is “Are you Hispanic or Latino?” Students have the option to not answer, indicate “yes” or indicate “no”. No additional ethnicities are listed on the admission application for students to identify. Of the 125,448 admission applications, 10,787 applications identified with Hispanic or Latino ethnicity, 29,381 applications did not specify, and 85,280 applications identified as Not Hispanic or Latino. The total admission applications with students who identified as Hispanic or Latino (10,787) and Did Not Finish RDS was 589 which amounted to 0.47% of all admission applications cross referenced with RDS and 5.46% of those who identified as Hispanic or Latino.
  8. 8. 8 6.8.18 The final demographic considered for students who Did Not Finish the RDS Online Interview was geographic location. Students not finishing RDS varied across the State. For this analysis, the zip code the student provided to RDS was organized by North Carolina county. There were five counties with 10% or higher non-completion rates. These counties were Gates, Yancey, Swain, Pamlico, and Columbus. All but one of these counties had less than 250 total students and less than 35 students not finishing RDS. Columbus County was an exception to this rule with 117 students not finishing RDS Online Interview out of 1,143 total students. A detailed listing of each North Carolina zip code and related classifications is included in Appendix A. 3. Based on the research from questions 1 and 2, what actions will be taken to simplify the questions or help people answer the questions? The primary stopping point evident in this data analysis is students leaving the RDS Online Interview when presented with the dependency status questions. The dependency questions are different based on age, but this stopping point was number one across all age groups. Recent feedback in student focus groups also identified this area as a point of confusion. RDS will consider ways to allow students to better identify their unique situation and continue in the Interview in a more directed manner. The second primary stopping point evident in this data analysis is students leaving the RDS Online Interview when presented with vehicle registration questions. RDS will research further why students are leaving this section of questions and consider possibilities for reducing this percentage. The Higher Education Collaborative Advisory Committee (HECAC) recently made a policy decision to allow students who are married or have a dependent, regardless of age, to be considered as independents when completing RDS. Across all age groups, 15.95% of students left their Interview at some point when completing financial self-sufficiency questions. RDS will implementing this functionality in early summer.
  9. 9. 9 6.8.18 4. Of those who are classified as in-state residents, what are the most common data points? RDS identified, by age group, where students who received a Resident classification most commonly completed the Online Interview as Resident. The questions were reviewed by age group since the RDS Online Interview presents different questions to students depending on their age when they complete the Interview. Once the most common data points within each age group were identified, these data points were compared across all three age groups. Twelve common points emerged across all three age groups of the 289,142 total students. The common data points in the chart are listed as they are presented to the student. Table # 7 # Top Common Data Points for Residents Count Percentage Cumulative Percentage 1 Student identified self or parent as military 7,198 3.05% 2 Resident after vehicle registration (parent and independent) 187,719 79.63% 82.68% 3 Resident after driver’s license or State ID (parent and independent) 3,320 1.41% 84.09% 4 Resident after voter registration (parent and independent) 20,718 8.78% 92.87% 5 Resident after employment (parent and independent) 3,122 1.32% 94.19% 6 Resident after high school (parent and independent) 5,347 2.27% 96.46% 7 Resident after tax (for student as a dependent) 408 0.17% 96.63% 8 Resident after vehicle registration (for student as a dependent) 384 0.16% 96.79% 9 Resident after driver’s license or State ID (for student as a dependent) 923 0.39% 97.19% 10 Resident after voter registration (for student as a dependent) 268 0.11% 97.29% 11 Resident after employment (for student as a dependent) 64 .03% 97.32% 12 Resident after student identified family as receiving social service benefits (parent and independent) 5,722 2.43% 99.76% Total: 235,293 There was minimal difference across the age groups in terms of residency classification. A total of 261 students under age 18 identified as wards of the state. This was the only difference across all three age groups.
  10. 10. 10 6.8.18 5. Of those who are classified as out-of-state residents, what are the most common data points? The same methodology for the Residency classification analysis was followed for the Non-Resident analysis. RDS identified by age group the points where students who received a Non-Resident classification most commonly completed the Online Interview. Once the most common data points within each age group were identified, these data points were compared across all three age groups. There were 10 common data points which emerged across all three age groups. The common data points in the chart are listed as they are presented to the student. Table # 8 # Top Completion Points for Non-Residents Count Percentage Total % Complete 1 Non-Resident after selecting no to claiming residency (first question) 1,050 3.00% 3.00% 2 Non-Resident after not meeting the Active Duty Military benefit 669 1.91% 45.58% 3 Non-Resident due to ineligible non-US citizen status 2,997 8.55% 4 Non-Resident after being unable to prove financial self-sufficiency and choosing to end the Online Interview 2,810 8.02% 5 Non-Resident after not providing information on parent (such as a unique identifier) 3,228 9.21% 6 Non-Resident due to duration 4,627 13.21% 7 Non-Resident after confirming filed NC taxes as a Non-Resident 1,641 4.68% 8 Non-Resident after completing social services questions 9,270 26.46% 49.88%9 Non-Resident after identifying they had no additional parent 5,343 15.25% 10 Non-Resident after completing veteran questions 2,864 8.17% Total: 34,499 98.46% Unlike students with Resident classifications, students with Non-Resident classifications showed slight differences across age groups and sectors. Students under age 18 and age 24 and older tended to complete the full Interview before receiving a Non-Resident classification while students ages 18-23 received Non-Resident classifications at the end of the Interview but also when not meeting the financial self-sufficiency threshold (70% of federal poverty guidelines). Students age 24 and older had a larger percentage of students not meeting the 12-month duration requirement (19.84%) compared to students under age 18 (5.92%) and students ages 18-23 (8.06%).
  11. 11. 11 6.8.18 6. Based on the research in questions 4 and 5, what questions can be eliminated from the Interview? Since going live in December 2016, steps have been taken at both a policy and operational level to make the Online Interview as user friendly as possible while staying within the guidelines of residency law. To date, RDS has completed 22 releases to simplify and improve the RDS Online Interview experience. Some of the enhancements include: • Establishing policy to permit students over the age of 24 to be considered independent for completing the Online Interview (May, 12, 2017) • Removing the questions allowing students to identify with the “Five Year” residency rule and providing them with an immediate classification (July 17, 2017) • Removing detailed questions within the voting, vehicle, and marriage information sections. (May 4, 2017 and August 22, 2017) • Add the ability for student to go directly from RDS back to their open CFNC admission application(s). (August 2, 2017) • Adding back buttons to various screens within the dependency section allowing a student to determine which responses best address his or her personal situation (March 6, 2018) • Added the Student Help Line on each page of the Online Interview (April 26, 2018) • Modifying questions for clarity and adding or modifying help text (multiple releases) Upcoming enhancements to be made include: • The Higher Education Collaborative Advisory Committee (HECAC) recently made a policy decision to allow students who are married or have a dependent, regardless of age, to be considered as independents when completing RDS. RDS will modify the Online Interview to remove the financial self- sufficiency questions for students in this demographic. This enhancement will be implemented in early summer. • Modifying the student status page(s) to notify a student of why they received a non-resident determination. • Providing students a historical record of their residency requests with RDS. For the remainder of 2018, RDS will continue to enhance the Online Interview based upon feedback from students, campuses and counselors, processing trends, and additional data analysis. HECAC will revisit this analysis in early 2019 to evaluate the impact of the interim modifications with all undergraduate campuses having participated for a full year.
  12. 12. 12 6.8.18 Appendix A Appendix A represents all students who started RDS between January 1, 2017 and January 1, 2018.
