Continuous enrollment

Students who enroll continuously in community college are more likely to complete an associate degree, transfer to a four-year institution, and earn a bachelor's degree than students who do not enroll, or "stop out," for a significant period of time. Continuous enrollment is usually defined as enrollment every consecutive term exclusive of summer terms or enrollment with no break greater than four or five months. Students who stop out are not earning credits during their absence and may find it difficult to resume their momentum in community college afterward.
