Improving Student Retention in Colleges

Upswing is a fast-growing product for higher education. We provide schools online academic support technology to fight attrition, which is a huge problem for colleges. On average, 45% of students drop out before their second year. That amounts to millions of dollars in lost revenue. We tackle the problem through a student success platform and deep, actionable analytics.

What We're Building

Forget what you know about online student support. Upswing is on a mission to end attrition.

Upswing is redefining what it means to support student success. We partner with colleges to provide early intervention software that is easy for administrators to use. From AI-based text messaging software, to online collaboration tools, and advanced data analytics, Upswing aims to support every aspect of student success and retention.

Each day, over 700,000 students have 24/7 access to live tutoring, advising, and communications via Upswing, and this is just the beginning of the impact that we're planning to make. Interested in making a difference in tomorrow's students? Join us.
