Identifying Predictors of Credential Completion Among Beginning Community College Students


Each year, millions of students enter community colleges looking to earn a credential or degree. In Identifying Predictors of Credential Completion Among Beginning Community College Students, Dr. Jonathan Turk of ACE’s Center for Policy Research and Strategy uses quantitative analysis to explore the relationships between credential/degree completion and student demographics, academic preparation, educational aspirations, enrollment decisions, and college experiences. 

The report reveals that the strongest predictors for degree completion include:

  1. A strong college GPA
  2. Completing more credits in the first year
  3. Taking a college entrance exam before leaving high school
  4. Earning dual enrollment credits while in high school
