The purpose of this quantitative study was to explore the factors that predict active duty student persistence to graduating within four years. Data were taken from a secondary data source from a fall 2009 entering cohort from a university referenced here as Ridgeside University (RU). A binary logistic regression was employed in the analysis of the data. Results of the regression indicated that race, sex, military branch, program major, and primary funding type were significant in some extent in predicting active duty student four year completion. Implications of the results and recommendations for future studies conclude this research.
