GradGuru’s mobile platform nudges community college students via push notification to help them meet deadlines and make decisions that lead to academic success.

GradGuru Product Website

GradGuru is a student-centered mobile platform that informs, motivates and connects community college students through nudges. These nudges are designed to help students meet deadlines and make decisions that lead to academic success. Nudges are preloaded with dates and events that correspond to academic and campus deadlines, and include social behavioral tips. Institutions are able to customize and create new nudges, which can include links that students can add to calendars on their phone. Students are incentivized to earn badges, which helps them keep track of higher-level college milestones, such as visiting the tutoring center or registering for classes. When students join the app, they are asked to complete a profile that includes elements such as enrollment status, age and hours worked, and administrators can use this information to target messaging and push out nudges to groups of students. Administrators have access to usage analytics and reporting on the web-based version.
