Georgia State University (GSU) has opened a Financial Management Center to identify students who are struggling financially and support them before they drop out.
The Financial Management Center's early-warning system using predictive analytics from EAB to flag students who are showing signs of financial distress, such as failing to meet the FAFSA deadline.
"The alerts provide information that in many ways is just commonsensical, but that we've never been able to deliver to students on a personalized basis at scale," says Tim Renick, vice president for enrollment management and student success at GSU. "The information doesn't have punitive effect on students. It doesn't force them to change major or drop a course, but gives information when there's time to act on it" (McNeal, EdSurge News, 12/15).
