This study investigated the impact of student background characteristics, college experience variables, federal financial aid awards, and college outcome variables on degree completion rates for a cohort of two-year college students. A model for institutional research suggested by St. John (1992) was adapted and this study sought to determine whether financial aid awards and student characteristic variables influenced degree completion rates for the cohort of students identified in this study.
