Abstract

This study examined the relationship between ACT Composite scores and high school GPAs on persistence to bachelor degree attainment within a six-year timeframe. Longitudinal data with 1,635 students were analyzed using a binary logical regression analysis. Results indicated high school GPA to be a significant predictor of persistence to degree attainment while the ACT Composite score was not a significant predictor. Implications from this study suggest that admissions officers may want to emphasize a student's high school GPA in determining if the student will complete a bachelor's degree program.
