Advanced Analytics Company Othot Releases Predictive Platform to Retain At-Risk College Students

May 11, 2021

In one semester, Indiana University of Pennsylvania is able to keep 50 at-risk students after giving them additional support identified through the Othot Student Success Platform

PITTSBURGH, PA (May 11, 2021) — Othot, a Liaison Company — used by colleges and universities to make more informed decisions using advanced analytics — has released a new more affordable Student Success Essential offering for higher education institutions. This newest Othot analytics platform gives student success directors and institutional research analysts powerful analytical capabilities to identify students at risk of “stopping out,” then provide those students with the supports that will keep them enrolled and on track to complete their college education. Student Success Essential is the newest product in the Othot Student Success product line.

Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) used Student Success Premier — which is the first student success product launched by Othot in March 2020. IUP ran qualitative research on at-risk populations and identified factors that differed between students who returned to the University and those who did not. With that data, IUP gave those at-risk students extra support and in the end, 50 of them stayed enrolled when otherwise it was very likely they would not have persisted.
