A LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF ACADEMIC AND SOCIAL PREDICTORS OF COLLEGE ATTRITION
Abstract:Examined differences between eventual graduates and eventual dropouts in a longitudinal study of college men. Predictor variables were obtained early in the first year of college and attrition status was assessed after four years. A linear combination of academic ability, family legacy status, specific stress perceptions, and self-perceived social alienation was found to predict attrition status.
