Abstract

Researchers have paid considerable attention towards understanding why students experience academic difficulties in college, particularly with regards to student persistence (Pascarella & Terenzini, 2005). While much of the research on retention in higher education focuses on institutional factors, including social support structures, financial aid, and campus climate (Mayhew et al., 2016; Pascarella & Terenzini, 2005; Tinto, 1997), there remain several questions regarding how the design and organization of a college curriculum can impact college student success.
