If attendees opt to purchase a $12 day pass, they can be purchased onsite via a parking machine in the garage. Printing a parking pass will not be necessary as the parking reservation references the license plate of the vehicle. License plate information is all that is needed!

We will answer your questions about our services and cover a range of topics, including:

  • Enrollment Reporting Update/New Products and Services
    • StudentTracker Premium Service: Learn how our enhanced service includes additional student-level detail in an analysis-ready format, a convenient repository of individual versions of our Research Center’s national reports, and dynamic visualizations that enable institutions to “print and present” with little effort. We have begun to add workforce data, so you can also discover our plans to expand this.
    • Reverse Transfer: Hear updates on our reverse transfer process, discussions we have had with the state systems offices and ways to make it even easier by using the Clearinghouse’s Reverse Transfer service for course and credit data exchange.
  • Electronic Transcript Services

Designing Services for Retention

Although many factors contribute to student retention, institutions have control over support services. Are your institution’s services comprehensive enough to meet your students’ needs? Are the services designed in a way that contribute to retention? This interactive workshop will help you answer these questions while also providing a road map for strengthening your service offerings and delivery.


Holly Teal, Colorado Mesa University
