    Abstract

    The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on quality education emphasizes that reducing disparities and inequalities related to the provision of primary, secondary, and tertiary education. Generally, the higher education institutions are using both business and corporate-level strategies to reach out to face-to-face, blended, and online learning students. Against this backdrop, this study argues that to increase student retention rates in the higher education institutions, and provide higher education that enables individuals to become lifelong learners, the following retention strategies can be implemented– (1) Academic Support Programs, (2) Provision of Capable Resources, (3) high quality of instruction delivery, (4) Provision of scholarships and subsidizing higher education fees.
