Title Grounded theory of adult student persistence
Description This grounded theory study investigates adult student persistence at a community college. Student persistence in college is a prerequisite for degree achievement, which correlates with higher earnings and overall better quality of life. Persistence rates remain low for adult students, who combine their college endeavors with responsibilities to families, careers, and communities. However, some adult students do persist despite their life circumstances. Understanding the perspective of persistent adult students contributes to the creation of college systems and policies that support adult student success.
