Matriculation Status of Nova Southeastern University's Fall Term 1993 Cohort at the Beginning of Fall Term 1998: Breakout Analyses for Campus-Based Students and Distance Education Students. Report No. 99-03.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
This study compared the matriculation status of distance education students and their campus-based counterparts (total N=10,187) 5 years after original enrollment in Nova Southeastern University academic centers in Fall 1993. Successful matriculation was defined as either graduation and/or continued enrollment in Fall 1998. The study found that the 1993 students enrolled in courses offered through the use of distance education had a significantly greater frequency of successful matriculation than their campus-based counterparts. Although distance education students had a greater frequency of successful matriculation than their campus-based peers overall, distance education doctoral students in the Graduate School of Education and Human Services and the School of Business and Entrepreneurship matriculated at a lower rate than did campus-based doctoral students. Tables detailing the study's findings are appended. (DB)
