A New Way to Do Your Day 

As we all transition to a more remote, online world, know that Ascendium is here to support you and your students. We realize you're facing many challenges right now. When the timing is right and you're looking for online training and student-centric solutions, we're here to help.

The Attigo Team


Daring to DREAM Big

atd-logoLast month I attended the DREAM 2020 conference, sponsored by Achieving the Dream (ATD). If you're not familiar, ATD is a national, nonprofit leader in championing evidence-based institutional improvements in student success. They help students overcome systemic inequities and obstacles in higher education.

To be among the DREAM scholars as they shared their achievements with the crowd, was both humbling and inspiring.

Ascendium's attendance at the conference was connected to our participation in the U.S. Department of Education's Project Success program. This innovative initiative offers wrap-around support services to students enrolled in minority serving institutions. Through the introduction of multiple resources and tools schools are able to elevate, guide, and support students to degree completion. 

An important take-away is that this model of support is clearly making great strides with students at minority-serving institutions. And I'm encouraged that these wins will help other schools introduce or expand their own wrap-around support services. If you're looking for easy to implement, cost effective tools to improve student outcomes, take a look at the Attigo Suite. Our solutions work alongside the student journey. 


  • GradReady - our online curriculum is especially useful at the start of the student journey, delivering financial wellness, academic and life skill support.
  • College Cost Meter - a student debt letter tool that lets schools send important financial aid and student loan information throughout enrollment.
  • Cohort Catalyst - premier repayment support begins once students leave school, it offers outreach and counseling to help students successfully navigate repayment.
If you're interested in learning more about GradReady's award-winning curriculum grab a seat for today's webinar, Boosting Financial, Academic, and Life Skills with GradReady.

As always, thanks for trusting us with your most valuable asset—your students' success.
