Martindale, Amy L.; Hammons, James O. – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2013
Students with merit-based scholarships and strong high school GPAs typically have high retention rates. Yet, many high ability students did not need to study in high school, and never developed effective academic skills. Such students may expect to excel in college with the same limited effort. Unfortunately, institutions may unintentionally…

Lascher, Edward L.; Offenstein, Jeremy L. – Journal of College Student Retention: Research, Theory & Practice, 2013

Existing theory provides some basis for…
