Tutoring Success by the Numbers


Recent data found that students* who completed 6 or more hours of tutoring during a semester had higher rates of success, retention, and persistence. Additionally, students who entered a semester on academic probation (below a  2.0 GPA) and completed 6 or more hours of tutoring, were more likely to end the same semester with above a 2.0 GPA. 

*Metrics: Student had 6 or more positive attendance hours and has one of the three educational goals: Obtain an AA/AS degree and transfer to a four year, transfer to a four year institution without AA/AS, or four year college student taking courses to meet four year requirements.
