Data from a random sample of 546 college students who sought disability support services over a 10-year period were analyzed. Logistic regression revealed that while matriculation at the same campus and grade point average predicted graduation; student gender, race/ethnicity, disability type, receiving financial aid and living on/off campus were not predictive. Implications for practice and research are examined to generate further interest in a population that has seen limited attention within post-secondary literature.
