North Dakota State University is one of 12 colleges selected to participate in a pilot program aimed at improving student success.

The program is known as Gateways to Completion. NDSU will investigate student performance in up to five of the school’s high-risk courses.

Program officials say students who do not succeed in so-called gateway courses are less likely to complete their stated study programs and are less likely to earn college degrees anywhere.

Other colleges in the project are American Public University System, Arkansas Tech University, Ashford University, Florida International University, Kennesaw State University, Lansing Community College, Lone Star College-North Harris, Metropolitan State-Denver, Nevada State College, University of Houston-Downtown and the University of Rhode Island.

The program is sponsored by the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education.
