Undergraduate Retention strives to support retention initiatives for all undergraduate students and, in particular, student groups with unique barriers to success including students in academic distress, first generation college students, and transfer students. Staff also collect data, compile reports and share information on retention trends and issues. This page highlights our efforts, including information about our primary student support initiatives and reports on retention trends at Carolina.
