dc.description.abstract Increasing dropout rates of undergraduates is an alarming issue faced by the higher education sector of Sri Lanka and worldwide. According to data from Higher Education Statistics agency of United Kingdom, 6% of first degree entrants aged under 21 who enrolled in 2013-2014 years did not continue their studies beyond their first year (Havergal, 2016).As highlighted by Barefoot (2004), the high rate of student dropout between the first and second year is a major concern for the majority of US colleges and universities. Student success rate is regarded as a primary indicator of institutional performance which reflect the overall quality standards of a learning environment. Students persisting to complete their educational goals is a key gauge of student success, and therefore institutional success (Voigtand Hundrieser, 2008). Accordingly, it is an obligation of each and every higher educational institution to commit in establishing conducive learning environments and effective and sustainable student retention programs aligned with their educational missions ensuring student success leading to high rates of completion. en_US
