Abstract

The study examines a 10-year history of undergraduate students majoring in information systems at a Midwestern public university. The results are useful to faculty and administrators interested in evaluating the role of distance learning with respect to graduation rates. The research investigates whether students that have taken various amounts of distance learning courses persist to graduation. In addition, the analysis looks at the role of gender in those students who graduated. The findings clearly indicate that students taking distance learning courses persist to graduation and that there is a relationship between gender and the amount of distance learning courses taken to persist to graduation.
