    Why Student Lifecycle?

    Student Lifecycle, the foundation of the HelioCampus data platform, starts with the integration of data from the Student Information System, as well as third party data sources.

    Extensible, Extendable and Flexible

    In order to be as flexible as possible, institutions can include data from any source into the platform. Depending on your teams’ level of expertise, you can bring in data sources yourself or work with a member of the HelioCampus team.

    Focus Areas

    Competition for students, increasing costs, evolving student demographics, and the need for relevant program offerings has left many institutions with room to improve their admissions and enrollment performance, as well as retention and graduation rates. Student Lifecycle helps institutions address a range of use cases including:


    Is the institution recruiting students who will be the most successful? Which geographies attract the top achieving students?


    How effectively is the institution meeting its enrollment goals by department, program, and degree? Are student diversity and demographic goals being met and if not, how can we improve?


    Where are the opportunities to improve student yield & persistence?


    Is the institution’s financial aid award strategy optimized for both admissions and retention?


    How can you identify students at-risk for early intervention?


    How does course success and sequence of course completion correlate to retention, persistence, and graduation success?

    Data Models
    Data models provide intuitive, logical relationships and integrations between data sources as well as within individual data sources that are not normally fit for reporting against. Organized by subject area, data models provide for efficient and organized analysis and serve as the foundation for dashboards and predictive models.
    Data Visualization
    Intuitive data visualizations and standard dashboards help make your data actionable and understandable. The HelioCampus platform includes a set of standard visualizations, showing trends for key metrics. Each dashboard can be configured and customized based on your business rules and specifications.
    Data Science Services
    While the technology platform and data organization are critical, ongoing data science services help tackle critical institutional challenges. These services include decision support, assisting with building predictive models, conducting user training, or integrating additional data sources into the platform.

    HelioCampus worked with UMGC to create a first-time donor predictive model. The results were impressive, with the predictive model being credited for a 5 time increase in first-time donor acquisition this year, compared to last year.
