This paper presents an overview and discussion of a course based remediation model developed to enhance student learning and increased retention based on literature. This model focuses on course structure and course delivery in a compressed semester format. A comparative analysis was applied to a pilot study of students enrolled in a course utilizing the remediation model to evaluate its effectiveness. "Retention is probably the single most important issue facing education professionals at the post­-secondary level, regardless of the type of school they are in… And it is not just an issue for individual schools--it is an issue for society as a whole as well" (Isaac, 2008, p.2).
