Academic Support

Students are more likely to get the support they need to succeed academically at smaller private colleges than students at other kinds of universities. Eighty-four percent of students at private colleges said that they got the support and encouragement they needed to succeed in the classroom. Only 76 percent of students at public universities with research programs said the same.
