Integrated Planning and Advising for Student Success (iPASS)
We support the development of technologies that improve student retention through Integrated Planning and Advising for Student Success (iPASS), which helps students navigate the path to a certificate or degree. iPASS combines advising, degree planning, alerts, and interventions. The tool draws on predictive analytics to help counselors and academic advisors determine in advance whether a student is at risk of dropping or failing out, and it can help assist students on what courses they should select.
