Do Online Students Persist Better?

Do online students persist better?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, at the University of Hawaii, full-time students who take at least one online course persist and graduate at a higher rate than those who don’t.

While online courses are often praised for making higher education more “possible” for working adults, it turns out that they may make graduation more likely as well.

The takeaway? Dig into your data, see what modalities and formats are the most successful for your students, and encourage them to pursue those higher likelihood paths toward graduation.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
