Abstract

This paper presents a report on students who decided to drop out of the BSc program offered by Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU). This study was designed to determine the reasons leading to students' decisions to withdraw from the program. Identified and reported in this study are nine major reasons leading to drop out. Results of this study lead to several suggestions for improving current instructional and delivery strategies of IGNOU's BSc Programme. Following such suggestions could help to reduce students' dropout rate for this particular program through implementation of timely interventions at different critical stages of their learning journey. (Contains 1 figure and 4 tables.)
