Enrollment Analytics, Financial Aid and Pricing Strategies

Shape Outcomes in Uncertain Times

The most effective tool for anticipating yield, achieving enrollment targets and increasing retention is a carefully calibrated allocation of merit and need-based financial aid. We not only analyze data and follow predictive models, but also provide recommendations based on common sense—taking a hard look into “why” to determine what you can actually do about it.
It’s about staying nimble, so we can adjust your strategy in real time. Timely, intuitive and interpretable data is key to informing and empowering human interactions. By refining your data and analysis, we can help you adjust your aid strategy while remaining competitive on price and achieving your long-term budget goals.

How We Do It
