What Influences Student Persistence at Two-Year Colleges?
Cofer, James; Somers, Patricia
Community College Review, v29 n3 p56-76 Win 2001
Discusses the Higher Education Act of 1992, which increased the availability of student loan funds. Examines the difference in effects of background, achievement and aspiration, college experience, price variables, and accumulated debt in 1993 as compared with 1996 on student persistence decisions. Finds that current year subsidies are positively associated with persistence, but the opposite is true for accumulated debt. (Contains 61 references.) (AUTH/NB)
