Promise & Potential: Students alter paths but stay in school after freshman year

More than a quarter of college students don’t stay enrolled for second year.

For the all the work it takes for high school students to get into college, it isn’t always easy to stay there.

According to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, of all the students who started college in fall 2014, 72.1 percent were still enrolled at an American institution by the fall of 2015, while 60.6 percent started the 2015 fall term at the same college they started with.
