Online attrition rates are a pressing issue for organizations offering online courses. This paper focuses on the most commonly cited factors associated with online course attrition rates; in particular, both the individual characteristics and the external factors of attrition rates will be discussed. Additionally, specific examination of the internal factors associated with persisting or dropping out will be analyzed. This is of great importance as the demand for online education continues to grow and the factors associated with online attrition have not been highly generalizable due to differences in the instructional design of courses and the use of varying online course platforms.
