AACC is a prominent advocacy organization that represents almost 1,200 two-year, associate degree-granting institutions and more than 13 million students in the United States and internationally.

This award recognizes EduNav for advancing and improving student access, success and completion through personalized educational planning.

EduNav SmartPlan is a dynamic planning solution that works much like a GPS system, automatically recalculating students’ best path to completion as any circumstance changes. SmartPlan detects when a a class section fills, a student withdraws from a course, even when degree requirements change. The tool then updates the student’s entire educational plan, replacing courses where necessary to keep the student on the most optimal path to graduation.

“SmartPlan is a game changer, the most comprehensive and intuitive product we have seen for successful degree, career and transfer planning for students,” said Denise Swett, vice president of student services, Foothill College. “It is also a predictive enrollment management tool for deans. We anticipate we will see very impressive completion data as a result of this state-of-the-art software.”

Because educational plans are always current, students always know their best “next step,” and so do institutions as they’re planning courses and allocating resources for future terms. That knowledge drives smart decisions for improved academic and institutional outcomes.

“We are committed to helping students and institutions reach the U.S. goal of increasing two-year completion rates by 50 percent by 2020,” said Isaac Segal, president and CEO of EduNav. “We are honored that AACC has recognized that commitment.”
