Individualized, Purposeful, and Persistent: Successful Transitions and Retention of Students at Risk
Nix, J. Vincent; Lion, Robert W.; Michalak, Megan; Christensen, Amy
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v52 n1 p104-118 2015
This article provides an overview of GED holders admitted into the Successful Transition and Retention Track (START) two-year pilot-project. An enhanced college-success course, career and mental-health counseling, and English and mathematics tutoring acclimated GED holders to college. Results suggest that postsecondary educational attainment of GED holders is enhanced through mentoring relationships with other successful GED holders and that insufficient financial resources are substantial deterrents to persistence in postsecondary education.
