AUSTIN – The University of Texas System today announced a partnership with MyEdu, the nation's leading student academic platform for completing college, to help students across UT System institutions raise graduation rates and support career readiness goals.
The partnership is the latest effort to support a framework action plan announced in August by Chancellor Francisco G. Cigarroa, M.D., to bolster excellence across UT System institutions. The nine-point plan includes, among other things, a focus on undergraduate student success and outcomes.
"Each student that is part of the UT system has a unique circumstance and individual hurdles to meet his or her specific academic goals. With millions of choices across degree programs and class schedules at each institution, college planning can be very complex," Cigarroa said. "Our investment in MyEdu's academic platform will augment the efforts of our talented academic advisers and faculty, who work diligently with students and families to map out a successful path to graduation. MyEdu will help our students graduate in less time and significantly reduce their overall cost of education. The UT System is pleased to partner with MyEdu in this important endeavor as we strive to continually improve and better serve our students and their families."
With free easy-to-use degree planning, credit management, workload tracking and social applications specifically designed around students' needs, MyEdu brings together students, parents, advisers and faculty to help students manage their academic career. Additionally, MyEdu enables students to significantly lower their education costs by avoiding additional semesters and reducing textbook purchases and living expenses. By shortening the time to graduation, MyEdu tools will increase students' earning potential by allowing them to enter the workforce sooner.
