Higher education advisory company EAB is partnering with the National Student Clearinghouse to help institutions boost degree completion, particularly among students who started or expressed interest in college but did not complete an undergraduate degree.

Through the partnership, EAB's member institutions get free access to the Clearinghouse's StudentTracker Premium service, which provides data and analysis to help identify learners who may be looking to transfer or resume their studies.

"Our agreement with the Clearinghouse provides our member institutions with the ability to identify students who have completed some college, reach out to them with information tailored to their unique circumstances, and ultimately help them succeed," explained Chris Marett, president of enrollment services at EAB, in a statement.

"Many colleges lack the in-house expertise required to motivate dropouts and potential transfers to achieve their educational ambitions," commented Scott Verzyl, associate vice president for enrollment management and dean of undergraduate admissions at the University of South Carolina. "What these students need most is clear information on financial aid, transferrable credits, and flexible scheduling options. EAB has proven its ability to craft and deliver that information to potential applicants at the right time and in the best format."
