u-retention enables the early identification of at-risk students, using personal, family, and academic data as well as payment behavior. This provides an individual review and follow-up for each student and supports improvement in student persistence and retention. The solution also allows for departmental, program, or institutional level aggregation and trend analysis.


  • Identifies the relative retention risk for students and tracks daily changes to their risk profile, allowing the institution to intervene and mitigate appropriately.
  • Documents the most influential student risk factors, informing the design and implementation of improved policy and process.


  • Dynamic and flexible generation of predictive student retention factors.
  • Initial and ongoing self-calibration of the mathematical model using the available historical and new data.
  • Orders and prioritizes students by risk score and provides a detailed report with level of risk and the necessary information to enact a retention and success strategy.
  • Provides macro level reports for the primary causes and risk factors contributing to persistence and retention measurements at an institutional level.

u-improve is useful for students, for fellow academics, for the accreditation process, the design of a curriculum, and checking the curriculum is actually meeting its objectives.

The really important development came with u-improve in the learning outcomes area. The outcome specifications are more consistent, more intelligible, more meaningful, and more available.
