Retention Services

The Office of Retention Services helps students tackle issues related to completing their degree.

Our caring staff serve as student advocates and can help connect you to the resources you need. We will listen to your concerns and help you solve the problems that are preventing you from completing your degree. Together, we will develop ways to overcome obstacles that may be preventing you from academic success.

Our services to students:

  • encourage successful academic progress and persistence
  • guide and assist with problem solving
  • provide awareness of college services available
  • provide support through the withdrawal /leave of absence process
  • provide guidance to students on academic probation

D'Youville College recognizes that each person has intrinsic dignity and unique capabilities. We show concern for all students, and all associated with the College, providing each individual with the opportunity and support to reach his or her highest potential.

Our Mission

The Office of Retention Services supports and promotes student goals toward degree completion, and develops retention interventions that foster student success by serving as a student advocate, assisting with any issues and problems brought forward by students and proactively reaching out to students at risk for falling behind.
