Retention & Graduation

Preventing students from withdrawing without completing a prescribed course of study has become a major preoccupation for San Jose State. We believe the initial step in constructing a successful student-retention program is research. Thus, it is important to know a) the degree to which it has a retention problem, b) the particular student populations among which the problem is occurring, and c) some of the reasons why the problem is occurring. The key to answering these questions lies in development of an effective "student-tracking" system. This site is designed to provide the information to monitor students' progress at university, college and program levels. Three tracking approaches (traditional, conventional and SJSU home-based) are available to examine student progress toward degree completion.
