There are some incoming freshmen who have taken all the necessary steps to start college, but simply disappear over the summer. And, there are currently enrolled students who have done what it takes to persist, but leave school due to verification roadblocks. Both sets of students are opposite sides of the same “student melt” coin, resulting in lost opportunities for both college and learner. So what can we do to combat melt?

This half-hour session provides a brief overview of the melt phenomenon, using curated research to highlight some of the root causes and issues, as well as steps we can take to raise awareness and identify strategies to help students get to and through college.
