    Abstract

    High drop-out rates and low graduation rates have become an issue of growing interest for higher education institutions and academic authorities. Since 2003, the University of Antioquia started a process of identification of the main factors associated with this phenomenon. This article presents an analysis of the determinants of drop-out and graduation in two of its schools, carried out by an application of the proportional hazards models of R. Prentice, L. Gloeckler, and B. Meyer set in discrete time. The results confirm the joint impact of individual, socioeconomic, academic, and institutional factors over the risk of dropping out and graduating
