Braunstein, Andrew; McGrath, Michael; Pescatrice, Donn
Journal of College Student Retention, v2 n3 p191-203 2000-2001
Analyzed the effects of family income and financial aid on college students' persistence at Iona College, New York. Institutional data on family demographics, academic achievement, and financial variables indicated that financial aid did not significantly affect persistence. Although students from families with greater incomes tended to persist, academic performance was the most significant factor affecting decisions to persist. (SM)
