A recently-completed pilot project at five Idaho colleges increased retention rates for non-traditional students by focusing on a series of intensive student support interventions including intrusive advising, accelerated remediation, and college skill-building courses.
The pilot efforts, which were funded by the J.A. and Kathryn Albertson Foundation, enrolled almost 500 students with an average age of 28. More information about the project, including a white paper and video, is available here.
