College Possible integrates StudentTracker® from the National Student Clearinghouse within its CoPilot student success platform to better support students

PAUL, Minn (June 18, 2024) — College Possible, a leading national nonprofit dedicated to connecting historically underserved high school students with near-peer coaching to help them access and succeed in college, today announced the integration of StudentTracker® for High Schools from the National Student Clearinghouse within CoPilot, its premier student success information platform. This integration marks a significant milestone in streamlining data management processes and empowering K-12 and higher ed institutions to better serve students across the country.

“This collaboration underscores our commitment to empowering partners with the best tools they need to improve student success in an efficient and systematic way,” said Derick Hutchinson, senior director at College Possible. “With this integration, we’re confident that institutions will be able to capture student needs more effectively, playing a crucial role in helping student success teams know when and how to intervene to obtain the best results.”

CoPilot offers institutions a 360-degree view of their students by giving them a clear understanding of their academic, financial and social well-being. Gathering visibility into students’ individual needs is imperative to improving postsecondary student success and outcomes such as retention and completion. With this new integration, insights from StudentTracker® for High Schools are incorporated into CoPilot within days, significantly reducing the manual process that previously took several weeks. This time-saving integration enables practitioners to efficiently analyze college enrollment and degree attainment, while leveraging the information as a catalyst for customizable intervention.

“Access to data and insights is absolutely essential for organizations working to advance student success. The integration of StudentTracker® for High Schools within CoPilot underscores the importance of trusted data to perceive the disparate opportunities and challenges that students face on their individual journeys to being successful,” said Marlowe Johnson, Managing Director of Learner Insights at the National Student Clearinghouse. “We recognize how hard students work to reach their dreams and how devoted the organizations are that support them. We will continue to provide the data and insights that are so key to measuring success.”

Moreover, the integration offers unparalleled consistency and reliability, significantly minimizing the risk of human error. This reliability ensures that institutions can confidently rely on the information provided by CoPilot without the fear of inaccuracies impacting outcomes.
