Using discrete-time hazard models, this exploratory study responds to the need for research on student veterans. Factors predicting persistence and graduation at a public university in Texas, serving a large student veteran population in the state, are examined; student veteran transfers' outcomes are compared to those of non-veteran transfer…

STEM majors offer pathways to lucrative careers but are often inaccessible to first-generation students. Using data from the Education Longitudinal Study, we conducted descriptive statistics, regression analyses, and group comparisons to examine differences between first-generation students and continuing-generation students across STEM degree,…

Jessup-Anger, Jody E.; Armstrong, Megan; Johnson, Brianne – Review of Higher Education, 2020
In this qualitative, multiple-case study, we explored 30 students' experiences across three social justice living-learning communities (LLC) to understand their conception of social justice and LLC involvement. Moreover, we examined the community elements that advanced these outcomes. Despite similar goals across communities, students demonstrated…

Loes, Chad N.; An, Brian P.; Pascarella, Ernest T. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
Analyzing data from the Wabash National Study, we use probit models while adjusting for sample selection to estimate the influence of effective instructional behaviors on graduating from college. Net of a host of potential confounders, we find that exposure to effective instruction significantly predicts graduating from college in four years. We…

This study examines the influence of collegiate environments and experiences on students' innovation capacity development. Drawing on a longitudinal sample of 528 first-year undergraduates from seven institutions in North America, we suggest that college can promote innovation capacities over and above students' personality traits, entering…

Student retention models were tested via structural equation modeling to examine the interrelations and predictability among socioeconomic status, psychosocial, and student success variables with a sample of 445 undergraduate students attending a large Hispanic serving institution. The proposed theoretical model included socioeconomic status…

Zilvinskis, John; Louis Rocconi – Review of Higher Education, 2018
College rankings dominate the conversation regarding quality in postsecondary education. However, the criteria used to rank institutions often have nothing to do with the quality of education students receive. A decade ago, Pike (2004) demonstrated that institutional rank had little association with student involvement in educational activities.…

Akos, Patrick; Kretchmar, Jen – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Admissions professionals have historically relied on measures of cognitive ability and academic achievement to make decisions about which applicants are admitted to their institutions. At the very least, selection on the basis of these factors (high school grades and standardized test scores) alone potentially decreases ethnic and socioeconomic…

Museus, Samuel D.; Yi, Varaxy; Saelua, Natasha – Review of Higher Education, 2017
Low rates of student persistence and degree completion are a major concern of colleges and universities across the United States. It is therefore important for higher education researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to better understand how to maximize the success of higher education's increasingly diverse undergraduate populations. This…

Darolia, Rajeev; Potochnick, Stephanie – Review of Higher Education, 2015
This paper presents an analysis of the effects of in-state resident tuition (IRT) policies, which allow undocumented immigrants to pay in-state rather than out-of state tuition, on when and where undocumented immigrant students enroll, and how they finance their education. We identify effects based on differences in pre- and post-policy outcomes…

Flores, Stella M.; Drake, Timothy A. – Review of Higher Education, 2014
Using individual-level longitudinal state administrative data, this analysis examines whether English language learner (ELL) status increases the likelihood of being designated as needing college remediation. We track a cohort of ELL and non-ELL students from first grade to college entry and investigate whether there are differences in students'…
