The purpose of this study is to assess why students leave the university before completing graduation. During the early fall semester of 2003, the Office of Institutional Research surveyed the students who were enrolled for fall semester 2002 but did not return for spring semester 2003 or fall semester 2003. The 2003 ACT Withdraw/Non-Returning Student Survey (short form) was mailed to 982 students. Ninety-two students responded to the survey for a net response rate of 10.2%. This study provides background information on the non-returning respondents and their reasons for leaving this college.
