Student Success & Retention Program

Supporting Student Success

   

 

Counselor working with a student

 

Important updates

Fall 2017 Academic Progress Report (APR) due October 6, 2017

The mission of the Student Success and Retention Programs is to educate students on how to return back to good academic standing, support students in choosing and declaring a major, and to encourage students who are academically underprepared. In addition, we work towards identifying resources to support student success as students work towards achieving their academic and career goals.
