Arbelo-Marrero, Floralba; Milacci, Fred
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v15 n1 p22-40 Jan 2016
This study focused on understanding the factors of academic persistence for 10 undergraduate Hispanic nontraditional students enrolled at two Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) in the southeast, each in their last year of a baccalaureate degree program. Using a phenomenological design, findings indicated that family context, personal aspirations, campus environment within HSIs, life challenges, and English language learning, all played a vital role in the persistence behaviors of participants.
