Student Success and Retention

Student Success and Retention provides academic and vocational guidance to new and continuing students as they move through  their education at Rochester Christian University. From the initial registration appointment, staff advisers work with students to establish an educational plan, define career goals, understand vocational aspirations, and connect them to co-curricular opportunities that will enhance their education and prepare them for life beyond the university experience. All new undergraduate FTIAC and transfer students are advised through Student Success and Retention regarding course selection and registration for their first year. Traditional students are subsequently transferred to a full time faculty member with expertise in their field of study. Accelerated students continue to work with the Center for Advising and Career Services throughout their program. Graduate students are advised by the director of their program.

In addition to advising current students, Student Success and Retention maintains the University’s online postings for internships and full and part-time employment opportunities, offers an annual Career & Internship fair and hosts pop up fairs for part time employment throughout the year.
