Junior College Experience and Students with Learning Disabilities: Implications for Success at the Four Year University
Johnson, Gail; Zascavage, Victoria; Gerber, Sarah
College Student Journal, v42 n4 p1162-1168 Dec 2008
There are an increasing number of students with learning disabilities attending college. Several factors and programs have been suggested as helpful to the success of students with learning disabilities in the college setting. One of the factors which has been suggested to be helpful is attendance at a two year or junior college. Little research has been done however to support the claims that attendance at a two-year college increases the success of students with learning disabilities. This study looked at the success of 84 students at a four-year college, 50 who had previously attended junior college and 34 who had not. Although there was no significant difference in GPAs earned, students who had previously attended a two-year college were more likely to graduate than students who had not attended a two-year college.
