As anxious as a student might seem to engage in his or her courses, sometimes that just doesn’t happen. Students drop out before each term’s start date, or even well into a program, for a variety of reasons. While some are beyond the control of the institution, there are some things schools can do to ensure students who enroll actually start, and those who start, are retained. In this eBook, we explore ways technology and data can drive communication and outreach strategies to reinforce the student/school relationship, providing the necessary information, encouragement and motivation from start to finish.
This is the second in a series of eBooks highlighting trends and strategies for schools to more effectively find, enroll, retain and teach their students, and as a result, optimize the cost of graduation for both the institution and the students that they serve.
