FACTORS RELATED TO APPLICATION, ADMISSION, REGISTRATION, AND PERSISTENCE IN COLLEGE.
REPPERT, HAROLD C.; AND OTHERS
THE PROBLEMS OF COLLEGE STUDENTS AND ADMINISTRATIONS WERE STUDIED IN THE AREAS OF FINANCIAL NEEDS, ATTITUDES, FUTURE PLANS, REASONS FOR WITHDRAWAL, REASONS FOR DECLINING ADMISSION, INTERRELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PROBLEMS, AND SPECIFIC PROBLEMS OF A LARGE UNIVERSITY. A COLLEGE POPULATION WAS DIVIDED INTO THREE GROUPS--A PURPOSIVE SAMPLE OF THE ACTIVE STUDENT BODY, WITHDRAWEES, AND THOSE WHO WERE ACCEPTED BUT HAD DECLINED ADMISSION. DATA WERE GATHERED BY ADMINISTRATION OF STANDARDIZED QUESTIONNAIRES. SEPARATE QUESTIONNAIRES WERE CONSTRUCTED FOR EACH OF THE GROUPS. THE CONCLUSIONS INDICATED THAT A BROAD COMPLEX OF FACTORS GOVERNED STUDENT DECISIONS ON REGISTRATION AND CONTINUANCE IN COLLEGE, WITH FINANCIAL PROBLEMS INDICATED AS A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN THESE DECISIONS. FURTHER RESEARCH WAS SUGGESTED ON THE CONTRIBUTION OF ATTITUDINAL, ACADEMIC, AND PERSONAL FACTORS TO THESE STUDENT DECISIONS. (RS)
