Greenville Tech is a National Leader in Helping Students to Succeed

Greenville Tech is one of only 14 colleges nationally to receive recognition by Achieving the Dream as a "2012 Leader College" for community college student success and persistence completing a program of study.   Achieving the Dream, Inc. is a national non-profit started in 2004 to help students, particularly low income and disadvantaged populations, stay in school and graduate.  Greenville Tech demonstrated commitment to and progress on engaging, supporting, and graduating well-qualified individuals.  Our New Student Orientation is one of many best practices which helped increase our retention rate for all students to 73% in 2011-2012 from 62% in 2007-2008, and an impressive increase to 71% from 58% for African American students.  The college was selected to be a participant in 2009, and the program now includes more than 200 community colleges.
