Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority
Free service helps track graduates’ progress
More than 120 Kentucky high schools have enrolled in a free service called StudentTracker that allows them to follow their graduates’ progress and to determine if they attended college, where they enrolled and if they earned degrees.
The service is offered at no cost to schools through funding by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA). KHEAA also uses StudentTracker as part of its effort to track students who participate in its state student financial aid programs.
The National Student Clearinghouse, a nonprofit organization that maintains the only nationwide collection of college enrollment and degree records, developed the program.
KHEAA is the agency of Kentucky State Government that administers the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES), need-based grants and other programs to help students pay their higher education expenses.
Although the service is free, schools must individually enroll to access StudentTracker. For an application or more information, schools may contact Pennie Little at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 928-8926, ext. 6-7495.
