Please Share Outcomes of your Summer Start Programs

Posted By Anne Van Arsdall, Wednesday, November 29, 2017

Do you have positive outcomes to share from your summer start programs?  I would love to know the impact that campuses are seeing from early start programs in terms of retention, graduation, and/or other student success indicators being evaluated.

Hello Anne,
Our SummerStart students consist of three populations: conditional admits, student athletes, and regular admits. Retention of SummerStart students after the first year (3 year avg. of 90%) is higher than the institutional rate and they are on par with overall graduation rate (>80%). Persistence of conditional admits is highest of the three categories and athletes are the lowest of the three. In all, we see SummerStart as successful and a significant positive factor especially when considering the makeup of SummerStart students. Another important factor is that SummerStart students have a higher propensity to obtain leadership roles across the myriad of opportunities on campus because they are ahead of the rest of their class. Call me if you'd like to discuss this in more detail. 315-443-1988.
