Racial disparity exists in the rates of persistence and degree attainment within American higher education. Some racial minority groups experience high rates of college attrition, resulting in lower lifetime wages and higher rates of both unemployment and incarceration than people who earn a bachelor degree. Although many studies have researched the causes of minority student attrition, less is known about factors leading to the academic success of students of color. Academic advising is well-defined in the literature as related to student satisfaction and retention.
