Academic Support

Title III

The following academic support options are funded through a Title III grant from the Department of Education. 

What is Title III?

In 2016, the University received a grant from the DoE as a part of their Strengthening Institutions (Title III) program. The following programs are a part of the new Academic Support department at DSU.  

Program Goals

  • Increase academic success in high-risk gateway and major’s courses (defined as courses having success rates of less than 75%; success rates = C or higher)
  • Increase student timely degree completion with individualized support resources.  Low degree completion with 150% of time compared to peers (Baseline = 41%; Goal = 55%)
  • Reduce loss of enrollment revenue by retaining more students to the second year. Low first year to second year retention compared to peers (Baseline = 64.9%; Goal = 75%)
