Initiate Success

Take precise actions that dramatically drive results across your institution.

Your command center for student success.

Illume® uses your institution’s data to develop personalized predictions that are timely, accurate, and actionable.

Pinpoint at-risk students hiding in plain sight, develop coordinated student success initiatives, and deploy targeted interventions, all from one place.

Each student’s data tells a story. Are you listening?


Illume Students

Your students are unique. So is your data.

Illume® Students enables your team to identify at-risk students, down to the individual student, with high accuracy. You’ll gain insight into the factors influencing their likelihood to persist, and be able to connect them with faculty and staff who can take action to improve outcomes in real time.


With Illume Students, you can find answers to questions like:

  • What types of engagement have the most impact on likelihood to persist?
  • What is the impact of financial aid on persistence?
  • Which students are deviating the most from their degree path, risking excess credit accumulation, financial aid availability and their overall likelihood to succeed?

By isolating key insights, you can immediately see a list of affected students and take action to best support them whether they are at-risk, highest achieving, or anywhere in between.

Connect insight to action:

The Student Lists feature in Illume integrates student persistence predictions with the ability to identify student groups in need of support in the current term.

This information empowers institutions to quickly and easily develop strategies for personalized outreach, act with precision, and measure the downstream impact of their actions.

Illume Courses

Students’ grades in specific courses can make or break their trajectory for success. Now you can know which courses those are.

Find the courses with the biggest impacts on persistence and graduation, identify grade tipping points and target individual students with proven, personalized resources and interventions.


With Illume Courses, you can find answers
to questions like:

  • How much does a student’s grade in this course influence graduation likelihood?
  • What course grades predict student success?
  • What is this course’s potential to boost graduation rates?

Armed with answers to these questions and more, your deans, program leads and instructional designers can personalize outreach and provide proactive support to individual students, while also augmenting courses and curriculum.

Illume Impact

Higher education doesn’t lack for initiatives. Knowing which are working for each student, and when? That’s another matter.

Until now, it was hard to know which students to direct to various initiatives, and even harder to know which initiatives were working. With Illume® Impact, you can see the persistence lift caused by your initiatives while gaining valuable insights to help you better understand your diverse student body.


With Illume Impact, you can find answers
to questions like:

  • Which pilots and programs should we scale up?
  • Which student populations stand to gain the most from each initiative
  • What programs should we divest from, or redesign?

Whether you’re focused on realizing big gains from a single initiative or looking to achieve smaller, but meaningful gains from several different programs, Illume Impact provides the information you need to confidently take action.


Persistence & GPA

One of our pioneer partners discovered the limitations of best practices based on GPA scores. Using Illume, they went beyond GPA to evaluate students according to a wide variety of persistence predictors.

As a result, they discovered that they had been missing a full 25% of at-risk students.

Enrollment & Scholarships

At one institution, Illume insights proved that high school class percentile was a better indicator for persistence than ACT scores.

Administrators subsequently changed the way they evaluate student applications and allocate scholarship dollars to hit their target enrollment rates.
