US colleges and universities are experiencing a $9.9MM average decline in revenue annually due to student attrition. This loss is primarily driven by Freshmen who fail to return for their Sophomore year. Retaining students not only affects their future success but also has a tremendous impact on a university’s bottom line in cost and reputation for future enrollment.
EdjAdvance, improves retention rates by identifying which Freshmen are at the highest risk of dropping out and illuminating the associated factors with increased risk. Once provided with students’ individual risk scores, university staff can focus intervention efforts such as career path and financial counseling, mentoring, or tutoring on the students with the greatest need.
Using historical data from application software and student records, Edj produces accurate predictions on which individual students are most likely to leave after their Freshman year.
EdjAdvance is a customized report showcasing insights around which variables are most indicative of a student’s likelihood of leaving, as well as visualization of key data trends. Risk scores for each individual student and their corresponding risk factors will be provided to enable university resources to quickly identify the students who need additional attention. With an affordable annual subscription and refreshed data, EdjAdvance can be updated once per year to identify at-risk students in the subsequent class.
