The Enrollment Management Spectrum

he work of admissions is different from the work of enrollment management. Admissions, the act of admitting a student to the school, is an important part of the job of the enrollment leader but it is not the only factor that influences sustainable enrollment. With 70% of a school’s annual operating revenue coming from tuition, sustainable enrollment is critical to the health of the school. Yet many factors critical to sustainable enrollment are outside of the direct control of the enrollment leader. This webinar will explore the eight factors that school leaders control that contribute to sustainable enrollment. Attendees will receive a slide deck and handout detailing the Enrollment Management Spectrum.
