Sheridan College launches effort to assist students, boost retention
SHERIDAN — For students who might need some additional help to complete a class or a program, Sheridan College officials are encouraging those students to just ask. More specifically, they are asking the students to participate in the college’s new Just ASC, or Academic Support Centers, program.
According to Northern Wyoming Community College District President Walter Tribley, the program is part of the college’s overall strategic plan that focuses on increasing student success. In addition, it is focusing on the issue of student retention.
In a report to the district’s board of trustees Tuesday, Tribley said the college’s retention rate for the last academic year dropped 6% to about 54%.
