Stephen F. Austin State University

Student Success Advising Tool

Student Success Collaborative

The success of students is at the core of all we do at Stephen F. Austin State University. In order to assist students with timely completion of their degrees, the University is utilizing the Student Success Collaborative. The Collaborative is an academic advising tool that utilizes predictive analytics to assess if a student is likely to complete their selected degree. It identifies students who are at risk of failing to complete their degrees and suggests roadmaps to a degree based on the student's academic strengths and past successes. In summer 2013, the Rusche College of Business, College of Sciences and Mathematics, and Center for Undeclared Majors piloted this Success tool and all academic departments now have access to it.

Research Resources

The Student Success Collaborative is a tool developed by the Education Advisory Board (EAB). The EAB provides best practice research and practical advice regarding academic affairs, business affairs, student affairs, advancement, continuing, online, and professional education, and community colleges across North America. You will have access to their extensive catalog of research in best practices and data analysis.
