Financial Aid Optimization

Individualized Strategy for Optimized Results

A strategy built from the ground up, accounting for shifts in market forces and student behavior, monitored by our experts for in-cycle optimization. It’s sophistication that leads to goal achievement.

Financial Aid Optimization
  • 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.

“UMSL’s admit volume has increased dramatically for full-time students, while keeping yield at similar levels using Carnegie awarding strategies. Carnegie has helped us find the value in our own data, additional data points we should be collecting, and increased collaboration between financial aid and admissions.” Reggie Hill
