When Retention Fails, Is Reattraction Worth Trying?
Barnard, Janet C.
A pilot study measured the results of an attempt to locate inactive continuing education students and encourage them to enroll in one or more program-related courses. A sample of 20 randomly selected students who had been inactive for 3 years was involved. All had been undergraduate business students lacking a maximum of four courses to complete program requirements. During the 6 months following a mailing regarding completion of their programs and a subsequent phone call, five respondents registered in at least one program-related course at the institution. Several subjects who had moved from the geographical area had already earned transferable credit from other colleges or sought permission to do so. The study seemed to indicate the need for an ongoing process for recognizing and tracking inactive students. (YLB)
