Student Retention

Student Retention

We succeed when your students graduate.
Student retention is one of the most important metrics we have to judge our success. Beyond simply being a measuring stick, retention rates are a primary focus of national education policy reform, accreditation boards and program rankings.

For Embanet, student retention is a priority throughout all of our services. Retention begins with targeted marketing materials and effective recruiting efforts. Prospective students are assessed using a Learning Preparedness Assessment. Once enrolled, these highly qualified students show a greater aptitude for learning and are engaged through well-designed courses and learning materials. This engagement leads to greater student satisfaction, increased retention, lower loan default rates and ultimately higher graduation rates.

Our Academic Partners experience significant increases in retention and graduation rates. Course-to-course retention is routinely above 95%, and graduation rates are routinely above 85% at the graduate level.

We engage and support students throughout their experience.
Even highly qualified students can have difficulties learning or staying on track during their enrollment. It happens. That’s why all of our students receive personalized attention from a retention specialist throughout the duration of their degree program. This personalized attention helps ensure that students don’t fall behind, that they find help when they need it, and that they re–enroll when the time comes. This service has proven itself to be a defining factor when it comes to retaining at-risk learners.

A rewarding academic experience is one of several important pillars for good retention. Retention is perhaps our greatest evidence of success.

Our retention specialists provide the following services:
• Ensure students are registered and have their login information prior to class commencement
• Build personal relationships with each learner
• Ensure textbooks are delivered and received by each student
• Identify and assist at-risk learners
• Obtain course/program evaluations and feedback from students
