Proprietary colleges are uniquely different from two or
four year colleges due to the emphasis on the student
establishing a definite career path prior to enrollment.
Because of this career track emphasis, Bandura's (1977)
postulation that self-efficacy is a significant variable
influencing task completion may offer insight into the
challenge of student retention at a proprietary college.
The study's purpose was to determine if career self-
efficacy, demographic factors, and academic preparedness
measures in first quarter students could predict student
persistence, class attendance, and academic performance. The
statistical technique of multinomial logistic regression was
applied to data files of 725 first quarter students who
attended The Art Institute of Dallas from Summer 1996
through Winter 1997.
