  • Align your admission and aid strategies under a coordinated, consistent vision. Our sophisticated predictive models and depth of consulting expertise help you meet or exceed your enrollment goals while controlling discount rate.

  • Develop more targeted and cost-efficient approaches to recruitment. By scoring every prospective student record with an application probability, we help your team make the most of limited resources. Understanding conversion probability helps you focus recruitment messaging, evaluate the return on investment for key lead sources, and more effectively segment your communications.

  • Measure retention probability at the individual student level before students enroll and build that understanding into your admission and aid strategies. Our pre-enrollment retention models and individual-level risk-scoring will ensure comprehensive enrollment planning for student success and improved revenue outcomes over multiple years.
