Persistence & Retention
Persistence and retention are measures of academic effectiveness and student engagement.. Persistence is the rate at which the students continue to enroll in one or more courses that contribute toward the same academic goal from one session to the next. Retention is the rate at which the students continue to enroll from one year to the next, calculated on a 16-week semester (rather than an 8-week session) basis.
As it relates to students, LAPU conceives the promotion of faith, life, and learning as engaging students in learning (through curriculum design, instruction, and student support) that reflects the Christian worldview of LAPU and culminates in the realization of hope in our students. As a result of this process (through their interactions and study at LAPU), we hope to see our students graduate from our programs better equipped and better prepared to fulfill their life goals.
