Achieving the Dream
Using data from Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count, this issue looks at the differences between students enrolled part-time, compared with those enrolled full-time, during their first term. The analysis addresses differences in developmental needs, as well as various outcome measures -- persistence, credits completed, and accumulated and cumulative GPA. The data show that at Achieving the Dream colleges more full-time students were referred to developmental education, yet a larger portion of full-time students persisted. However, part-time students achieved slightly higher GPAs and completed slightly larger percentages of credits attempted than did full-time students. Being sensitive to such variations will help colleges develop their strategies, as interventions that help full-time students may not be suitable for part-time students.
