Of the 3.5 million students who enrolled in college for the first time in fall 2017, 74 percent of students persisted as of fall 2018. While those numbers have increased incrementally over the last few years, many institutions are struggling with making a meaningful improvement in retention, graduation, and more importantly, success rates.
Join Othot’s Bob DiMaggio and Traci Roble for a webinar where they will discuss how predictive and prescriptive analytics can inform strategies and tactics to improve student outcomes. They will highlight use cases and offer strategies to bridge the gap from enrollment to retention and enrollment to initial academic success.
