College and University, v57 n2 p160-65 Win 1982
A study of student retention at the University of Missouri--St. Louis focused on the behavior of stopouts. Retention of first-time freshmen was higher than that of transfers, but the cumulative percentage of graduates of transfers by the fourth year was double that of first-time freshmen. Males showed higher retention rates, as did Whites over Blacks. (MSE)
