To enhance student performance, prevent attrition, and build a learning community, two courses were linked together by requiring concurrent enrollment. Students in an unlinked class were used as a comparison group. Grades, evaluations, and attrition rate suggest that linking courses can improve writing and exam scores and reduce attrition.
