I'm looking to run a competing risk discrete-time survival model with college retention data (with 0=dropout, 1=retained, 2=graduated for each semester) In Asparouhov, Muthen & Muthen 2006 it briefly mentions that a competing risk model is possible in MPLUS but I'm having trouble finding any examples and am unsure how the coding would differ from a traditional discrete-time survival analysis. Any help would be very appreciated!

You have to analyze each event variable separately while treating the other events as censoring. See for example

Ah, I see. I'll give that a shot, thanks for the help!
