The high number of non-enrolment students has affected retention rates in Indonesia Open University. This study was aimed to explore contribution of self-motivation on student persistence in Indonesia Open University by employing mixed methos approach. Student progress in this study refers to continuation of enrolment within four consecutive semesters. The design of sequential explanatory study was opted by obtaining quantitative findings from surveying 153 students and the was followed by semi-structured interviews with 13 purposefully selected participants. In the quantittaive phase, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation had important contribution to student persistence. Meanwhile, the qualitative phase demonstrated that intrinsic and extrinsic motivation did not stand in conflict each other in influencing student persistence in the Open University context. This finding refined previous research findings that extrinsic motivation could undermine learner’s intrinsic motivation.
