Retention Update: UK undergraduate colleges and units still in the running for increase in UK’s retention rate

This just in from Bethany Miller, Director of the UGE Office of Retention and Student Success:

The latest Retention Update has been posted!

As of yesterday, 4,246 of the University of Kentucky’s official Fall 2014 cohort have registered for Fall 2015, representing 82.8% of the total cohort (5,128).  In comparison to this date last year, we are still tracking ahead 1.0% and 469 students.  The decrease we are experiencing is expected:  academic suspensions from Spring term are placed and students are disenrolled from courses.

Between now and June 18th, we are asking everyone to continue to reach out to those non-registered cohort students (who are eligible to enroll for the fall semester) to off-set the decrease we will experience from academic suspensions.   We need a total of 5,310 students (64 more) to meet our goal of 84.0% by June 18th.

If you have content to include in the Retention Updates, please send your information to Larissa McLaughlin, Student Success Project Manager.

As always, thank you for your dedication to student success.  Please contact me if you have any questions.
