Analytics to Predict Student Enrollment, Retention and Success

Wednesday, March 7, 2018 1:00 PM ET


Can analytics solutions predict and elevate net tuition revenue? What role can institutional research offices play to help colleges and universities get the biggest return on their student investment? Using admissions, demographic, and financial aid data, the University of Texas System has developed a dynamic tool that “predicts” students’ enrollment. The result: optimizing return on investment and potentially increasing net tuition revenue through increasing retention rates. Attendees will learn how this statistically based predictive analytics model used for two very different institutions predicts matriculation, maximizes return on financial aid resources, and increases retention.


After participating in this program you will be able to:

  • Gain a detailed understanding of the predictive matriculation model and how you might create and implement the same model at your institution.
  • Develop an understanding of how financial aid packaging strategies (discretionary, partial discretionary, and non-discretionary monies) impact students’ admissions decisions 
  • Estimate institutional dollars lost due to attrition based on the current financial aid strategies
  • Estimate net tuition revenue gains using the predictive matriculation model
