Increasing fear in the higher education market around student debt and other uncertainties in the market are causing students and families to question the value of higher education, rule out colleges based on sticker price, attend second, third, or fourth choice institutions, and in some cases not attend college at all.
This webinar explores:
- How concerns about cost and student debt are impacting the higher education market today
- How colleges are using Loan Repayment Assistance Programs (LRAPs) today to strategically help students and families overcome these concerns
- The impact LRAPs have on enrollment, yield, and college preference
- How to continue to yield students despite market challenges
