[...] research has shown that community college students are 10 to 18% more likely to drop out of college than students who attend four-year institutions, even after controlling for background, ability, high school grades, and aspirations toward a college degree (Dougherty, 1992). [...] many community college students do not live on campus, have limited opportunities to actively engage in social activities, attend college part-time, work off-campus, and/or have limited opportunities to form significant support systems, which are all factors previously shown to impact student grades, retention, and graduation rates (Cohen & Brawer, 2003).
