Student Success & Retention Program

Supporting Student Success

Fall 2019 Academic Progress Report (APR) due October 18, 2019

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