Ishitani, Terry T.
Journal of Higher Education, v77 n5 p861-885 Sep-Oct 2006
This study investigated attrition and degree completion behavior of first-generation college students. Based on the findings, first-generation students were at the highest risk of departure during the second year, followed by the first year. These students were also 51% less likely to graduate within 4 years than students with college-educated parents were. (Contains 5 tables, 2 figures, and 6 endnotes.)
