Retention & Student Success Review

Support and Foster Student Outcomes

Attracting the right students is only one part of the solution to student success. High retention and graduation rates speak volumes about the quality of your institution’s educational programs and experiences. Many institutions work hard to enroll students, only to see those students leave before earning a credential or degree. Having an effective retention plan remains a critical component of Strategic Enrollment Management, and of reaching your enrollment goals while reducing enrollment costs.

Our Retention and Student Success Review provides a comprehensive examination of your institution’s overall approach to student transitions and support. Working together, we’ll get to the core of the issues impacting your student outcomes.

Strategy for Student Success

Customized for your specific challenges and goals, the engagement begins with a detailed review of your institution’s retention and graduation rates from first term to six years. Armed with this insight and from interviews on your campus, we’ll help you develop and implement a practical plan to:

  • Take a more strategic and integrated approach to student success
  • Create a retention plan that works within your unique institutional culture
  • Deepen understanding of your student profile, including transfer and high need students
  • Identify and address barriers that impede student retention and success
  • Improve student satisfaction rates
  • Enhance programs and services designed to help students succeed
  • Increase the number of students taking advantage of these programs and services
  • Make sure appropriate offices and departments are well prepared to support student success and satisfaction
  • Put you on the path to more Strategic Enrollment Management

Our experience with AACRAO Consulting has been excellent. Our consultants were  knowledgeable, professional, and collegial. As an institution of higher learning that believes in  the value of expertise, we recognized the value of bringing in AACRAO Consulting’s experts in Strategic Enrollment Management. They’ve helped us understand the barriers to our enrollment, and more importantly, created a framework we didn’t have to overcome those barriers. The knowledge they imparted to us has stuck. And it’s also worked.
