An active research experience for undergraduates (REU) was discussed. Research experience for undergraduate students provides educational experience through specially designed active research projects. A quasi-experimental design was applied to analyze the impact of REU on academic achievements. Retention rates, cummulative grade point average (GPA) and overall academic persistence measured by ratio of earned and attempted credit hours were also analyzed. Educational outcomes such as obtaining graduate education and employment were measured.
