Enrollment Research Associates offers our client colleges a wide range of innovative data-driven services and deliverables to help them reach their enrollment and revenue goals in today’s fast paced and rapidly changing environment. Single service projects are available, but most of our clients engage us for comprehensive consultations, in which we provide the services included on this site in addition to whatever research and support is required to meet their enrollment and strategic objectives.
MARKET IDENTIFICATION AND STUDENT SEARCH
Through a review of historical enrollment patterns, high school characteristics, and demographics, ERA will work with you to identify the best places to recruit students for your school. We then use powerful statistical processes to target your search purchases and to provide enhanced information about all the students in your inquiry and prospect pools.
SCHOLARSHIP AND FINANCIAL AID STRATEGIES
ERA offers a wealth of expertise in devising a strategic and data-driven approach to the development of an efficient scholarship and financial aid allocation model. We will help you implement the chosen strategy, provide continuous monitoring throughout the cycle to assess the emerging enrollment picture, and work with you to make mid-course corrections if necessary.
Afterward, we will conduct a review of the strategies at the end of the cycle, including a custom-built follow-up survey to gain a better understanding of student behavior.
