Little research on first-year programming has focused on the adjustment and persistence of international students. This qualitative study investigated the first-year experiences of international students at an institution where large numbers of international students enroll, but few persist to graduation. Interviews with international students who persisted at the university and were in their senior year revealed several areas of first-year adjustment stemming from linguistic and cultural differences. The findings support some aspects of traditional persistence theories such as the importance of involvement and integration. First-year programming for international students must address English proficiency and the development of social networks.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition is a semiannual refereed journal providing current research on the first college year and other significant student transitions. The primary purpose of the Journal is to disseminate empirical research findings on student transition issues that inform practice in all sectors of postsecondary education, such as explorations into the academic, personal, and social experiences (including outcomes related to success, learning, and development) of students at a range of transition points throughout the college years; transition issues unique to specific populations (e.g., non-traditional, traditional, historically underrepresented students, transfer students, commuters, part-time students); and explorations of faculty development, curriculum, and pedagogical innovations connected to college transitions.
