Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this quantitative study was to explore secondary data from the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) Freshman Survey to analyze what influenced the persistence of Latina/o students at a California State University commuter campus from their first year to their second year. Logistic regression was utilized to analyze the data. The findings of the study show that what affected the persistence from the first year to the second year of Latina/o students was their degree aspirations, academic goals, and the number of years they studied mathematics in high school. Implications for future research and recommendations for practitioners are delineated in this study.
