Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City Creates Student-Retention Program

A coordinator will lead the program, and retention counselors will be hired for each of OSU-OKC's academic divisions. Support groups and counselors will work with students at mid-semester to begin planning the students' enrollment for the next semester.

The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education awarded Brain Gain Improvement Grants totaling $300,000 to OSU-OKC and four other system institutions.

Rose State College in Midwest City will receive $34,000 for its Summer Bridge Program, which was created to help academically disadvantaged students.

East Central University in Ada will receive $67,500 to expand retention strategies it began last year, including career development and an early warning system. …
