Solberg said part of the reason traditional four-year institutions are seeing an increase in the number of women attending includes a lower drop-out rate among females and better academic performance."Women are still making less than men in the workplace and females are finding that it is important for them to get that degree," Solberg said. A 2002 study by the Women, Minorities and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering organization found that while women are more likely than men to graduate from high school and enroll in college, the number of women who graduate with degrees in science and engineering fields is equal to the number of men coming out of post-secondary education in similar fields.Solberg said men more often than women are also looking for careers in fields that pay well but don't necessarily need the liberal arts education.
