Student Retention Programs
The Office of Student Retention Programs coordinates activities designed to improve your chances of success at UAB. Whether you are a freshman, an upper level student or a student inquiring about VA educational benefits, our services can help you maximize your college experience. Programs coordinated by Student Retention Programs include the Minority Scholars Program, Student Success Seminars, and UAB-Veterans Affairs.
- The Minority Scholars Program (MSP) provides special resources and services designed to help prepare you to further your education after graduation. MSP is a four year multifaceted program focused on academic excellence and social development. The undergraduate program components include faculty/staff and peer mentoring, leadership development, internship and research opportunities, honors program, tutorial program, and course survey program. After graduation, students are invited to join the Minority Scholars Alumni Chapter (MSAC). MSP takes students from the freshman year to graduation and beyond, which exemplifies the program’s motto: “Each one, reach one.”
- The Student Success Seminars provides a variety of online topics like study skills, time management, taking tests, managing your finances, and learning from others. These online seminars are available seven days a week from any internet-linked computer.
