Through best practices research and decades of experience from our colleagues in Enrollment Services, we provide data-driven undergraduate and graduate solutions that target qualified prospective students; build relationships throughout the search, application, and yield process; and optimize financial aid.

How We Help With Enrollment

Featured resource: Our latest survey on student communication preferences

Enrollment teams work hard to perfect their messages for prospective students. But those messages can get lost in today’s maze of communication channels. To help you achieve the greatest impact, we surveyed 5,580 college-bound students about their media use and preferences. Download the survey.

We combine technology, research, and consulting to help you identify your most at-risk populations, coordinate cross-campus resources so students can find the help they need, and analyze the data that informs your decision making.
