dc.descriptionFemale community college students who have a child while in college are 65% more likely to drop out than those who don’t. This brief, from researchers with the Texas Policy Evaluation Project, shows that a large percentage of community college students want to use more effective contraceptive methods, but many aren’t using them, often due to access barriers. Several strategies are recommended to help community college students have children when they are ready for them, thus improving their chances of successfully completing college.
