Bers, Trudy H.; Nyden, Gwen
Journal of College Student Retention, v2 n3 p205-17 2000-2001
Examined characteristics of community college students who enrolled but left before the census date. Data from telephone interviews and the institution's student information system indicated that the size of the disappearing student population was about 10 percent of the total enrollment. Nearly two-thirds were gone before the semester began, and one-quarter returned. Students had varied reasons for leaving. (SM)
