 CCCU CONSORTIUM: 

USING WINTER TO IMPROVE FALL TO SPRING RETENTION

FOR THIS WEBINAR:

This webinar will introduce the recently formed CCCU Online Consortium which will enable member institutions to share courses with aligned schools that share a commitment to Christ-centered education.  Among other benefits, the Consortium provides the ability for schools to significantly improve retention and graduation rates, since the courses can be taken within the student’s full-time semester bloc and can utilize student financial aid.  The presentation will cover how schools can use a Winter term, under a consortial model, to improve fall-spring retention and generate new revenue.  Last summer, members of the College Consortium improved freshman to sophomore retention by 3% via the following efforts highlighted during the webinar: 

 

  1. Replacing D/F/Ws - identifying and making high D/F/W courses available for students to replace poor grades 

  2. Offering pre-probation/dismissal options - giving students a last-chance to avoid probation or dismissal

  3. Improving athletic eligibility - giving student athletes more options to remain eligible for spring sports

  4. Having post-dismissal options - bringing students back with a new term to prove themselves
