Integrated Planning and Advising for Student Success (iPASS)

Computer lab 3

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.
