Non-Returning Student Scan
Retention is a major concern for colleges today. Not only is it more cost-effective to retain students than recruit new ones, but nationally, more emphasis is being placed on retention and successful outcomes. Since the reasons students leave your college are as varied as the students themselves, a one-size-fits-all retention plan will not work. What will work is a plan based on solid research – and a Non-Returning Scan from CLARUS Corporation can produce results.
Working in collaboration with your college, personal telephone interviews will be conducted with students who attended your college and left in good standing after one or two semesters.
The Scan will establish:
- Why students left
- Where they went after leaving your college, whether to jobs or other colleges
- Whether your college is losing students to four-year colleges earlier than it should, or if they are leaving for personal reasons with which the College cannot help
CLARUS will develop recommendations for improving your college’s retention rate, identify if there are early-warning mechanisms that could be put in place to help your college retain students, and suggest strategies that can be employed to make program completion or a degree more valued by students.
