Title V program, Latinx, community college, Hispanic Serving Institution, student success, academic performance
Historically, the low degree attainment of Latinx students has been an issue of concern. The Title V Developing Hispanic-Serving Institutions Program was implemented to address this issue. This quantitative study examines the effect of participation in a Title V program’s accelerated developmental English and English as a Second Languages paths on Latinx student success measured by academic performance, persistence and fall to fall retention at a comprehensive community college. By applying propensity score matching and the conceptual model in this study, the effect of participation in the Title V program on Latinx student success was measured without the influence of the covariates. This study found that students who participated in the Title V program’s accelerated developmental English and ESL paths had higher academic standing, cumulative GPAs, success rate, completion rate, and persistence compared to students who did not participate in the program.
