While many postsecondary access and success programs successfully support students to enroll in a degree or credential program after high school, completion rates of students from low-income communities continue to lag far behind their high-income peers.
OneGoal designed and executed a qualitative study to understand the underlying causes behind students not completing their postsecondary pathway. We focused on two research questions:
- What is the root cause of student stopout?
- Why do students who stop out return to complete their degree/credential?
