Built in close collaboration with Brigham Young University-Idaho, EPS was influenced from the ground up as a tool that will bring returns to the institution and valuable benefits to the students.

College Readiness

Reduce your institution’s remedial course load. The Academic Preparation module can bring students up to speed before embarking on their first semester. Additionally supplementary materials through the Academic Success module are available in real-time to enhance the opportunity for student success as they tackle major specific coursework.

Student Engagement

Reduce your institution’s attrition rate and increase the graduation rate. By providing students with a clear and simple tool to set their path with the Educational Strategy module, EPS helps students to create a purpose, a plan, and real-time updates to encourage their goals for success. The Roadmap module guides them on a path to prepare the necessary skills and to develop a network that will increase their chances for the next steps after graduation.

Students become actively involved in making decisions rather than just having answers given to them.

The powerful combination of the Educational Strategy, Grad Planner, Roadmap, and Alert modules take students through an on-going plan that unfolds, adapts, and supports their academic journey. The Academic Success and Advising modules provide the needed resources to reduce course re-takes and add-value to the vital student support services that keep students on track.
