Achieving the Dream
Using data from Achieving the Dream: Community Colleges Count, this issue of Data Notes compares terminal-major, transfer seeking and undeclared students. The different educational paths represent students with different objectives and likely different needs, both of which may be related to persistence. Understanding these differences is critical for community colleges working to improve student outcomes. (Contains 6 figures and 2 footnotes.)
