Office of Retention & Student Success Initiatives
We are committed to your success. Meet our staff and learn more about how we can help support 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.

Submit an Alert in OnCourse for a student you are concerned about who would benefit from the Office of Retention & Student Success Initiatives providing additional support and resources.
Week 1 Participation Rosters are required by the university. Please be sure to complete a Participation Roster in your Faculty Center every semester. The information shared on students not attending the first week is shared with our office and automatic Alerts are issued. It is not necessary for you to submit individual Alerts in OnCourse on students not attending the first week. However, we do encourage you to submit other Alerts to us anytime throughout the semester; the earlier we can outreach to a student the better!
