Retention Management Systems Plus™ Overview

How can you help more of your students succeed and persist?

The Student Retention Predictor combines your institution’s enrollment data and data from the Ruffalo Noel Levitz College Student Inventory™ into a powerful statistical model that identifies which incoming first-year students are less likely to persist, and, of these, which students can be influenced to re-enroll.

Start Predicting

Many campuses focus more resources on recruiting students than on retaining them. But it is far more cost-effective to improve the student experience in and out of the classroom to increase student retention rates, completion, and ultimately enrollment.

RNL Student Success gives you the most comprehensive way to nurture and develop successful students from pre-enrollment through graduation.
