The Impact of Textbook Affordability on Student Retention and Persistence

The focus on student retention and persistence is growing in importance to college administrators as they try to improve graduation rates and decrease the loss of tuition revenue from students that either drop out or transfer to another school.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, Center for Education Statistics, only 50% of those who enter higher education actually earn a bachelors degree. The reasons range from family problems and loneliness to academic struggles  and as the total cost of eduction has increased in the US, so has student attrition. 

In the 2015 College CFO Survey on Textbook Affordability and Bookstore Services, we asked participants if the increasing prices of textbooks played a role in student persistence and retention on their campus.
