Founded by educators to combat low college graduation rates, Persistence Plus is developing the “Weight Watchers of College Completion.” Through a proprietary platform, Persistence Plus applies cutting-edge behavioral research to foster the student behaviors that lead to persistence and college success. Freshman attrition along costs colleges $8.4B in net tuition and we are signing a growing cohort of college customers for our cost-effective and innovative retention solution.
Nearly 1/2 of students who start college don’t finish. Persistence Plus is helping colleges change that stat.
