Redefining Early: New Strategies for Retention and Student Success

LIVE Webinar date: Wednesday, December 7, 2011
Time: 2pm – 3:00pm ET


Traditionally, colleges and universities have used final grades to signal academic success. But we know that even by midterm, time is already running out for meaningful interventions if students are at risk. Today, we have better data about the factors that contribute to student success or student failure. And we are using that data to develop early intervention programs that can help students stay on track and improve retention. Join Tim Coley, Ph.D., from SunGard Higher Education to discuss why reaching students early matters more than ever.

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is geared towards registrars, admissions officers, student services and records administrators, enrollment professionals, and higher education professionals interested in retention.
