Student Retention Model

Background

In today’s competitive workforce, a post secondary degree is a critical factor in young adults finding employment and earning a good living. However, only 57% of college students complete their degrees within six years and 31% drop out altogether.

An independent private university experiencing an average freshman-year-to-sophomore-year attrition rate of 20% engaged EdjAnalytics to help identify the at-risk freshmen and optimize their retention efforts. Edj’s predictive retention model helps universities identify high-risk students before classes begin and follows them throughout their college careers. Retaining students through their graduation not only affects student success but the universities’ bottom line in both cost and reputation.
