Past studies demonstrate that the first semester of college is the most challenging for many students. However, this challenge can be overcome with your effort, and the Freshman Retention Estimator below uses the evidence we found to show you how to improve your odds.
This tool estimates the probability of a student successfully completing their first semester and how likely they are to return to school in the second semester. Based on your demographic and academic characteristics, as well as what you will accomplish in your first semester, this tool was created using statistical techniques to analyze the behaviors and results of more 1,500 students over the last two years.
Using this tool, you can find your best chance for success as a result of what you will do in the first semester, regardless of the background you may have at the entry of college. The underlying message of this tool is crystal clear - your future is determined by your effort and commitment to success, not by your past. Faculty and staff at UDCCC are also committed to your success. Together, let's achieve your dream.
