About Student Retention Services

Student Retention Services at MxCC provides many different types of support services to promote student retention and academic success.

We provide support for a variety of personal issues and concerns through programs listed in the For Students section.


We look to you to help us educate students about the support available to them – by directly referring students to our office, allowing us to make a (brief) presentation of our services during one of your classes, and to share information with your students. Encourage students to use the Recommended Resources & Essential Tools listed in the homepage.
