The Ohio State University at Newark


Office of Retention

We are committed to your success!

The staff in the Office of Retention and Student Success Initiatives are committed to ensuring all students have the necessary supports, both inside and outside of the classroom, to fully realize their academic and personal potential at Ohio State Newark. We strive to enhance student success by encouraging students to identify their individual strengths and take full advantage of campus resources designed to help them succeed. We ask students to give thoughtful consideration to their academic and personal goals leading them to take responsibility for their education, choices, and decisions.

We realize that, at times, students may experience difficulties or unexpected challenges related to academics, health, financial, or social, and we are committed to connecting them with resources both on and off-campus that may help. We encourage students to meet with an Academic Success Coach to explore options that may help decide how to proceed. In many cases, a short-term change may be the key to long-term success.

Students who are driven to meet their educational goals and desire to take advantage of every resource available to further support their efforts are also encouraged to meet with us to create a personalized academic success plan.
