TRANSCRIPT Abstract The purpose of this qualitative study is to investigate the students’ perceptions, of factors that help them choose to complete an online doctoral program. While studies have been focusing on the identification of factors that lead to the presence of low retention rates, the purpose of this research is to expose the common patterns which lean online students complete their doctoral programs. There is a large annual volume of students flushed through the educational system [Car151]. Failure to understand what prevents the system from achieving higher retention rates leads to a vicious cycle of ineffective problem-solving activities. When looking at the impact of the doctoral student retention rates, studies tend of focus on the identification of the factors that cause such results by digging more in-depth in the lives and statistics of those that have failed. However, there is a chasm in understanding what makes students complete their online doctoral program and how each pocket of excellence could be replicated. All research denotes that doctoral student retention has created a substantial financial impact on both sides – student and institutions – causing a ripple effect across all educational levels [Car151]. The interviews are part of the overall study to help grasp the elements that make a student successfully complete their online doctoral program. The researcher focuses on online, female students. A mix of both single mothers, working professionals, and married individuals whose doctorate program becomes an addition to their already full schedule. The interviewees were identified via social media, specifically LinkedIn. The researched proceeded to first investigate the course of study and school chosen by the participants, to ensure it fits the profile of an online doctoral program. Furthermore, the researcher narrowed the participant group down to female students of not particularly ethnic background, education, or career level. The interviews were scheduled and completed via phone. 2

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
