Cooperative and Concurrent Enrollment and College Retention

The author examined the effectiveness of the Cooperative Alliance Program (CAP) designed to encourage high school students and adult students to enter technical programs in Oklahoma community colleges. The study measured enrollment status, GPA, and hours earned of CAP students compared to a non-CAP control group. After reviewing first-year data, the author found CAP students are more likely to remain in school than non-CAP students and achieve higher GPAs.
