Abstract

George Kuh, in Academic Advising: A Comprehensive Handbook (2nd ed.), states “(t)he road to success in college can be full of challenges, surprises and disappointments” (2008, p.78). This is especially true for readmitted students. The readmission program at Indiana University Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) serves to help readmitted students be more aware of the challenges, surprises and disappointments they may face. IPFW is supporting readmitted student success by providing tools and information that helps them evaluate their goals, motivation, resources, challenges and strengths and is seeing success! Please come and hear about the struggles, changes and goals for this ever-evolving program. Let’s discuss how the current state of higher education has impacted admission and retention rates for this population!
