Non-Cognitive Factors That Support Postsecondary Persistence in Deaf Students

This image shows a woman still in front of a laptop. In the background, there is bookshelves with books and a whiteboard stand with some algebra trigonometry question and working. The woman appeared to be having a conversation with someone on the laptop screen. She has a pen in her right hand and a notepad in front of her.
Persistence in postsecondary settings refers to the likelihood that a student will remain in school, particularly past the first year of enrollment. Although deaf student enrollment in postsecondary settings has seen a significant increase, students continue to face obstacles to completion of their postsecondary degree goals, with high rates of attrition. Facilitating persistence is thus a critical issue in increasing education and work options for deaf individuals.
