Although access to higher education is virtually universally available, college student retention stills remains a vexing and puzzling problem for educators and legislators. In College Student Retention: Formula for Student Success, second edition, Alan Seidman deals with this problematic issue by examining a number of areas critical to the retention of students, including the history, the theories and concepts, models, and a standardized definition of the term. Seidman and his contributors also lay out the financial implications and trends of retention in one of their updated chapters. Completely new to this edition are three chapters that examine several recent issues: the current theories of retention, retention of online students, and retention in community colleges. Tying all of these components together, Seidman then presents his formula and highly successful model for student success that colleges can implement to effect change in retaining students and helping them to complete their academic and personal goals.

Drawing on studies funded by the Lumina Foundation, the nation's largest private foundation focused solely on increasing Americans' success in higher education, the authors revise current theories of college student departure, including Tinto's, making the important distinction between residential and commuter colleges and universities, and thereby taking into account the role of the external environment and the characteristics of social communities in student departure and retention. A unique feature of the authors' approach is that they also consider the role that the various characteristics of different states play in degree completion and first-year persistence. First-year college student retention and degree completion is a multi-layered, multi-dimensional problem, and the book's recommendations for state- and institutional-level policy and practice will help policy-makers and planners at all levels as well as anyone concerned with institutional retention rates—and helping students reach their maximum potential for success—understand the complexities of the issue and develop policies and initiatives to increase student persistence.

This study investigated the extent that the attributes of incoming students and their subsequent academic and social interactions at an institution are related to community college student retention. Student data from a cohort of first-time students (N = 1089) attending a community college in southwest Missouri was analyzed to examine variables related to fall-to-fall student retention. Predictors of first-year retention included receiving federal Pell grants, high school GPA, receiving a C or higher in college orientation, first semester college GPA, and receiving a C or higher in general psychology, general biology, and U.S. History. The findings highlight the importance of college readiness and value of federal financial aid programs for community college student persistence.

College student retention has been studied in depth at both 4-year and 2-year institutions, but not at technical colleges. Institutions of higher education continue to struggle with early identification and intervention strategies to aid in student retention. Technical Colleges are not an exception to this challenge. To aid in the early identification of at-risk students and practical application of possible intervention techniques, the present study uses latent class analysis to identify student profiles through the use of College Student Inventory composite scores. The classes were then compared to retention status one year following the first semester of enrollment. Results support a thirteen class model that relates significantly to retention overall but limitations of the study limited detailed analysis of class specific characteristics related to retention. The ability to identify, and target, homogeneous groups of students will enable practitioners focused on college student success to target intervention strategies according to the characteristics of a single class, or profile, of students. This ability will make retention efforts more effective and efficient, thus more likely to be implemented at institutions of higher education.

This research was conducted with the intent of analyzing the factors that determine the desertion of students at a school or university. In order to simplify the study, students that were enrolled in the Airway Science Program that decided to abandon their studies were utilized. I could also demonstrate the importance that the educational goals have in the students and how they could be affected by the institutional factors. It is the preconception of knowing if the students that decided to abandon the program, did it to meet their academic goals or due to some institutional factor or variable that motivated the abandonment. The decision of abandoning a university or school affects the student and the institution itself. A student that decides to abandon school demonstrates that the quality of the education received does not conform with its expectations. The effectiveness of any educational institution is related to student involvement in learning. Every institution should accomplish student satisfaction with the services it offers.

Faculty blames admissions. Everyone blames students. The quest for retention is too gigantic for individuals to grasp. Responsibility diffuses and permeates through all departments. This text focuses on what instructors can do in their own world of academia to help increase student retention.
