Langenkamp, A. G., & Hoyt, A. D. (2017). Leaks in Latina/o Students’ College-Going Pipeline: Consequences of Educational Expectation Attrition. Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, 18(4) 357-371.

This study predicts Latina/o student attrition at two phases in the college-going pipeline. Findings suggest that academic achievement mediates Latina/o students’ attrition from expectations to college application. Preparatory commitment behaviors mediate attrition from application to attendance. Results also indicate that Latina/o students experience greater risk of attrition compared with other ethnoracial groups at both application and attendance stages of college-going pipeline. Implications for intervention points and adjusted models about college-going for Latina/o students are discussed.
