ClearScholar Narrows Prospective Partners Down to Fifteen Finalists For Its Early Adopter Program

INDIANAPOLIS — April 19, 2017 — ClearScholar, a leading student engagement technology company, has announced narrowing its potential Early Adopter Partners to fifteen finalist institutions. There were initially sixty institutions under consideration.

“Our team has had conversations with a wide variety of institutions and mutually evaluating whether there was a good fit for these colleges and universities to be a part of our Early Adopter Program. We hope to serve all of these prospective customers in the coming years, but the fifteen finalists have stood out with a mindset of innovation and will provide a diverse group of institution types and sizes which are vital to ensure our product remains malleable in serving all higher education  institutions,” said ClearScholar Vice President of Partnerships, Josh Williams.

ClearScholar fully launched its student engagement platform at Butler University in January of this year. The company plans to implement at least ten additional institutions this summer and in the coming school year as part of the Early Adopter Program. Finalists for the Early Adopter Program will be notified in the coming week, and then a formal scoping process will begin to solidify details of the partnership.

This announcement follows recent news of ClearsScholar’s commitment to first-generation students. This prior announcement outlined a fee-waiver program for first-generation students in their first year at institutions who fully adopt the ClearScholar platform. National studies report that up to 90% of these students do not graduate within six years.

ClearScholar’s product is aimed at encouraging students to become more involved and engaged with their universities. Research shows students that are more engaged in activities and build strong relationships with peers, faculty, and advisors are more likely to graduate on time and have a richer student experience. The ClearScholar platform provides students with a highly functional and customized mobile app experience and university administrators with a rich tool to target content to various student personas.
