Arkansas colleges, universities see reduction in remediation rates

Arkansas colleges, universities see reduction in remediation rates

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Remediation rates for college and university students reached its second-lowest point since the Arkansas Department of Higher Education began tracking those figures in 1994 – which had the lowest to date, according to figures released Tuesday by ADHE and to be presented to the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board Thursday.

According to officials, students at four-year universities had a remediation rate of only 34.5 percent – the lowest yet – while students at two-year colleges were remediated at a rate of 75.5, on average 49.3 percent. Higher rates of remediation at two-year colleges is directly related to the older average age of students on those a campuses – many of whom are returning students – since students who have been out of high school a longer period of time are more likely to need remedial coursework.
