Complete College Georgia's (CCG) goal mandates USG System institutions to develop strategies that will result in substantial numbers of college educated graduates to man the projected labor needs of Georgia's 21st century economy. Improving college access and completion for students traditionally underserved in postsecondary education is one of the USG's CCG areas of focus. The majority of Albany State University (ASU) students are "underserved". To achieve the CCG goal, ASU's five-year CCG-Plan seeks to reduce academic deficiencies by 2% annually, and to increase retention and graduation rates by to 70% and 45%, respectively, by 2017. ASU students' perspectives will greatly enhance the prospect of success. This project will collect, classify, and analyze the perspectives of ASU students on how to achieve its CCG goals. This presentation presents the results of research that examines, through solicitation of responses to a written questionnaire survey, the views of students about academic and other services provided by Albany State University that are likely to assist them to persist and progress seamlessly toward graduation.
