We collaborate with partners to improve the quality of interactions with prospective students. We identify areas of opportunity, recommend best practices, and help implement necessary changes to meet future goals.

Does your staff know that retention starts in admissions?

Do you have a formalized retention plan before the start?

Do your employees understand how they impact retention?

Do you feel connected to your student population? If not, you might have retention challenges in your future – if you don’t already. Retention starts in admissions, and yet this responsibility often falls by the wayside. In fact, schools often attribute retention issues primarily to academics. Strong retention practices must be in place to ensure that students do not drop in their first 30 days, as these early weeks are make-or-break. Our proprietary preventative retention program simplifies this critical function and saves schools from wasting money starting students that aren’t retained. If you’re not sure how to invest in retention, The Source is here to help.

Clients who seek our Retention offerings might be struggling to understand their "melt" (the opposite of retention). Our proprietary retention analysis can both facilitate placement and mitigate attrition.
