Many students that attend Two-year Colleges in the United States have to participate in developmental coursework. These students are lacking the academic preparation to immediately start taking college coursework. This study examines the perceptions of these students as far as what they believe will make them successful as a college student. Success is defined as persistence, which means that these students will either complete his or her program, or will be able to transfer into a four-year degree program at a four-year college. The methodology selected for this study was the research survey design and included data collection using demographic data, a measure of persistence, and a 34- item survey that measured academic and social integration. The study found a low degree of correlation with significance between interactions with faculty and persistence.
