Community Insights reveals answers to questions like: What do we know about students who attend school part-time? Should we advise part-time students to load up their schedules or should we advise them to take just one more course? How does the persistence gap between part- and full-time students vary across the nation and what are institutions doing to address it?
Watch the webinar where we discuss learnings including:
- On average, part-time students across all types of institutions are attempting 3.6 courses per term
- 6.10 percentage point increase in median persistence rate between students who took three courses versus two courses across all institutions
- Largest increase in median persistence rate (14.91%pp) is between community college students taking one course per term versus those taking two
