How to Help Students Escape Transition Traps: 5 Well-Researched Tactics That Save Students and Boost Long-Term Retention

Research suggests that first-year students who underachieve are least likely to graduate. With the college dropout rate ranging from 33% to 59%, depending on the numbers in the data set, parents are increasingly worried whether their students will return to school after the first year.

In this new webinar, Leonard Geddes will reveal “the underachiever’s dilemma” before detailing five research-rich tactics that free students from the transition traps that trigger underperformance and academic failures. Participants will use the Escaping Transition Traps workbook to set current and future students on a clear path to academic success.
