The large file represents Dr. Antisdel’s doctoral dissertation on nontraditional and online student persistence and completion. It focused on four business components: a tuition rebate, online orientation course, revised academic calendar, and Borrower-Based Academic Year financial aid. Overall persistence rates increased from 67 percent to 76 percent following implementation. A differences of proportions Z test revealed considerable statistical significance (z = 21, p < .001, two-tailed). Additional analysis found statistically significant differences and/or positive student perceptions across groups on the influence of each initiative individually. The study also gathered student perceptions on various other factors. The highest rated influences on persistence and completion were the Christ-centered Focus, Online Format, and Quality of Education. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the four-pronged strategy, while also shedding light on additional nontraditional and online student motivations.
