Abstract

This article sought to identify factors related to high school completion rates and college enrollment among Hispanic students. Hispanic students were found to have high attrition rates in institutions of higher education. Implications for the development and implementation of retention programs for Hispanic high school students, such as culturally sensitive professional staff and faculty training, increased parent or family involvement, and improved parent or caregiver service provider communication in the development of programs aimed at the retention of Hispanic students, are presented.
