Serious about student success

  • Increased financial aid again — a total of 77 percent in six years;
  • Increased first-to-second-year retention from 76 percent to nearly 79 percent;
  • Increased pacing to graduation by encouraging students to earn at least 30 credits each year; and
  • ​Engaged students through more than 4,000 academic success coaching sessions.
