Retention Initiatives and Student Engagement
Retention initiatives provide a proactive approach to student engagement, support, and academic success. You will be connected with someone who will assist you if you have difficulties in one or more courses.
To ensure that you are equipped with the appropriate resources, guidance, and support, Madison College has designated student engagement programs.
