Summary "Although access to higher education is virtually universally available, about 50% of students who start in a higher education program drop out before completion of the degree. As enrollment and retention remain top priorities for universities, colleges, governments, parents, and students themselves, this book offers a formula for student success to retain and graduate students. Updates to this edition include chapters on community college retention, on-line programs, and retention theories"-- Provided by publisher
