Diffusing the Adult Student's Motivation to Disengage from a Community College's Admission Process.
Kiger, Derick M.; Johnson, Jeffrey A.
Continuing Higher Education Review, v61 p104-13 Spr 1997
Adults who did not enroll after beginning a community college admissions process (n=93) were compared with 198 who did. "Disengagers" cited cost, lack of financial aid, and uncertain goals as disincentives. Those who disengaged later in the process cited difficulty concentrating and the perception that the college did not care about their success. (SK)
