Student Retention Services

Student Retention Services

The primary focus of the Retention Program at Southern University at Shreveport is to increase the retention, persistence, degree attainment, and graduation rate of students admitted to the college either as first-time freshmen or transfer students.

Program personnel work collaboratively with the campus community to ensure that this objective is met.

Major services provided by the Retention Office include:

  • working with faculty members and academic advisors to implement an “early alert” notification system as a means of monitoring student attendance and progress in classes
  • intervening appropriately with students who have been identified as having frequent absences
  • monitoring the midterm progress of students who have been placed on probation or readmitted following an appeal
In conjunction with the Office of Financial Aid, scholarship recipients are monitored and tracked to ensure that they retain their scholarship eligibility.
