Higher education institutions are often concerned about retention rates, particularly among underprepared students. This study examines the effects of Counselors providing Resources, Integration, Skill Development, and Psychosocial Support (CRISP), which is a low-cost counseling model focused on increasing the academic success and retention of underprepared undergraduates (n = 273). Results indicated participation in CRISP was significantly related to higher first-year grade point average and retention to the second and third years of college.
