Student Persistence & Success Plan (SPSP)
Student success at Gaston College is often defined as graduation. In an effort to increase students’ successful course completion and progress to graduation, the College has an early alert intervention program called Student Persistence and Success Plan (SPSP). The system provides a tool for faculty and staff to report risk factors that could impede a student’s academic success. At-risk academic performance includes attendance, homework completion, motivation, engagement with courses, and grades.
