In looking broadly at student success, one can define it based on outcomes, principles, and practices. Joe Cuseo of Marymount College wrote a column, “The Big Picture,” in Esource for College Transitions, which was published by the National Resource Center for First-Year Experience & Students in Transition (2007). Cuseo defined student success in terms of the following:
Student Retention (Persistence): Entering college students remain, re-enroll, and continue their undergraduate education.
Educational Attainment: entering students persist to completion and attainment of their degree, program, or educational goal.
