Journal of College Student Retention
Published/Hosted by Baywood Publishing Company.
The aim and scope of the Journal are to provide the educational community, federal and state government officials, and the public with the latest findings regarding the retention of students in higher education. Although access to higher education is virtually universally available, many students who start in a higher education program drop out prior to completing a degree or achieving their individual academic and/or social goals. In response to student attrition, Colleges have developed intervention programs and services to try to retain students. Over the years colleges have spent vast amounts of money setting up programs and services for a variety of groups who will attend their college and may be in need of extra services to develop the necessary skills to graduate. In spite of all of the programs and services to help retain students, according to the U.S. Department of Education, Center for Educational Statistics, only 50% of those who enter higher education actually earn a bachelors degree. Enrollment management and the retention of students remain a top priority of colleges, universities, and parents of students who are attending college and of students themselves. The Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice provides the educational community, federal and state governmental officials, and the general public a medium to exhibit and explore the complex issue of student retention and attrition. The Journal features articles pertaining to current and new theoretical constructs and current research on student retention and attrition in higher education. In addition, the Journal provides practitioners a forum to highlight and disseminate to the educational community, current practices, programs and services, which help students persist through academic and personal goal completion.
