Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Community Coll. System.
This document analyzes the characteristics of continuing and non-continuing students in Hawaii community colleges in fall of 1976, the third semester for the fall 1975 entering group. Analyses were made in terms of sex, age at time of entry, marital status, high school background, entry status, full/part-time status, educational objective, program, grade point average and credit completion ratio. Results indicated: (1) overall, the mean continuation rate was 64%; (2) significant differences in continuation rates between campuses existed; (3) males and females had identical continuation rates; (4) highest continuation rates were for those below age 19 at time of entry; (5) single students had higher continuation rates than married students; (6) new students had higher continuation rates than transfers; (7) full-time students had higher continuation rates than part-timers; (8) those seeking A. S. degrees and technology students had higher rates than those not in these categories; (9) students with grade point averages from 2.0 to 3.4 had higher continuation rates than other students; and (10) students with the highest credit-completion ratios had higher continuation rates than those with the lowest credit-completion ratios. Statistically significant differences in continuation rates were found for all characteristics studied except sex. (Author/JDS)
