Analytics Abstract
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.
