    This paper presents the study of data mining in the education industry to model the performance for students enrolled in university. Two algorithms of data mining were used. Firstly, a descriptive task based on the K-means algorithm was utilized to select several student clusters. Secondly, a classification task supported two classification techniques, known as Decision Tree and Naïve Bayes, to predict the dropout because of poor performance in a students first four semesters. The student academic data collected during the admission process of those students were used to train and test the models, which were assessed using a cross-validation technique. Experimental results show that the prediction of drop out student is improved, student performance is monitored when the data from the previous academic enrollment are added.
