Student retention is near the top of every institution's agenda. Student attrition results in tens of thousands of dollars lost each year. A recent student from RPK Group found that, on average, better retention could lead to $1M in profit each year1.

Why is a focus on Student Retention Important? 

  • Government Funding Impact
    • At least 70% of states allocate funding partially based on student outcomes
  • Reduced Costs
    • More cost-effective to keep students than recruit new students
  • Changing Marketplace
    • Students come from increasingly complex backgrounds leading to balancing multiple priorities along their schooling i.e. Work, Family, Finances
