ABSTRACT
Survival analysis is a statistical method, a part of the Generalized Linear Models, used to study the survival time of an individual to an event. The application of survival analysis is indispensable in open and distance education, like Universitas Terbuka (UT), Indonesia. This analysis can determine students’ durability of study opportunities within a certain time. The analysis showed that the appropriate survival model to describe the covariate that was supposed to influence the study durability of the UT students of the Non Basic Education Program was Log Logistics. Covariate that influenced the survival of study was course of study, age, marital status, employment status, educational background, number of credits taken, 1st semester’s result, Grade Point Average (GPA), and the courses taken per semester.
