The Office of Student Retention

The Office of Student Retention at Tougaloo College number one priority is to ensure each student attending soars. We are dedicated to building programs and networking with our campus partners to carry out the mission of Tougaloo. Students are able to meet with our staff one-on-one via face-to-face or Zoom to troubleshoot issues that may keep them from being able to attend or be successful in their classes. The Office of Student Retention provides access to resources and retention activities& that will ease the collegiate experience.
