Systematic Monitoring of the Adjustment to University of Undergraduates: A Strategy for Reducing Withdrawal Rates.
Rickinson, Barbara; Rutherford, Desmond
British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v24 n2 p213-25 Jun 1996
The experience of students withdrawing from a university in their first year is explored. Students' perceptions of the factors which influenced their withdrawal decisions are examined. Findings support the hypothesis that the main factor influencing withdrawal/persistence behavior is the degree to which students can adjust to the new academic and social demands of the university environment.
