Compact for Success

Measuring Our Success

The award-winning Compact for Success program celebrated its 12th anniversary in 2011. The partnership between San Diego State University and the Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) was the first of its kind in the nation, and others are now forming to model its achievement. Applications to SDSU have increased more than 120 percent since the beginning of the program.

The numbers of SUHSD graduates who have enrolled in SDSU have significantly increased, and the number of students being admitted having met the English and math proficiency requirements has also increased. Compact Scholars are outperforming other SDSU students and their retention rate is the same — demonstrating that the Compact for Success Program has not only provided access to SDSU but also the support to assure they will complete their educational goals in a timely manner.
