Abstract: We propose some novel computational approaches to analyzing historical student transcript data to help improve course sequencing and generate default pathways for students to complete a college degree. Additionally, we examine whether there are “hidden prerequisites” to courses and whether there are courses which, when taken early in a student’s career, may improve their chances of graduation. Our analysis was done on a dataset consisting of all student-course enrollments for a period of 10 years at Montana State University.
