Retention of students with learning disabilities in community college has become a concern to college officials. In this study retention rates and grade point averages of students with learning disabilities at community college were observed. This is a quantitative study and there was no interaction with participants. Data was collected through databases utilized by the urban, northeastern community college. Correlations between utilizing services and counseling and retention rate and GPA were calculated utilizing SPSS. It was discovered that there were weak correlations between retention status and accommodation and services use as well as GPA and accommodation and services use. There were moderately strong correlations between GPA between semesters, cumulatively and retention status.
