Grant Update

  • The goal of the FYE grant is to help with student success, to track retention, and graduation rates. The purpose of the grant is for institutions to implement new initiatives designed to increase retention, GPA’s and graduation rates and once the grant has ended these institutions can continue implementing the programs that have proved to be successful.
  • In reviewing FYE 105 numbers, it has been shown that students who complete the FYE 105 course have a much higher success rate than students who do not complete the FYE 105 course.
