ASSET Students

This report describes the ASSET students at CSU in terms of their academic/demographic characteristics as well as their student success indicators. ASSET status is defined as being eligible for in-state tuition under Senate Bill 13-033 during any semester of enrollment at CSU.

Overall, ASSET students are performing very well at CSU in terms of their persistence, but their academic performance (measured by the first term GPA and probation rates) is slightly lower than the overall levels at CSU, though not disproportionately large. Their higher levels of persistence (about 94% for second and third falls) are unprecedented. 

As the number of ASSET students continues to grow it will be important to consider the resources necessary to appropriately serve these students. Future cohorts need to continue to be tracked to ensure that a trend does not emerge between lower levels of success with greater numbers of students.
