How Important Is Student Retention Software in Higher Ed Today?


To truly address enrollment challenges, institutions need to apply the same amount of effort to retain students as they do when recruiting them.

Retention is a huge priority in higher education. The overall undergraduate student dropout rate is 40%, and 30% of annual dropouts are college freshmen who leave before sophomore year. To better understand the trends impacting these rates, and to better address those trends and increase student retention, institutions need to implement modern retention systems and strategies.

Innovative retention software can help institutions set up student tracking and enable early alerts so the right departments on campus can enact the appropriate intervention strategies. Many of these systems are meant to break through campus silos, allowing faculty and staff to share student information with those who can help.
