Discover New Ways to Retain and Attract More Students

With the rising cost of college and increasing student debt, many are wondering whether going to college is worth the investment. Colleges and universities are finding it more and more difficult to attract and retain students due to rising costs. Students do not want to get into debt, and not everyone can scholarship. In such a scenario, how can your institution become more attractive and affordable—and also retain your existing students?

Discover creative ways to retain and attract more students in this webinar by higher education consultant Charlene Talbot-Paul, and learn how to make your college more affordable. Talbot-Paul will explore examples that go beyond traditional tuition reduction methods such as scholarships, grants, and loans. She will look at Prior Learning Assessment (PLA), creative corporate partnerships, third party education partnerships, and other innovative approaches. Implementing these types of innovative approaches will offer many benefits, as well as challenges and constraints—all of which will be addressed in this session—along with strategies on how to overcome the limitations. Talbot-Paul will go beyond the description of the innovations that exist, and provide a roadmap on how to implement these innovations at your institution.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to identify effective and alternative tuition reduction methods—such as PLA, corporate partnerships, and third party education partnerships. You will understand the benefits of using these methods, and know the strategies to overcome the challenges and constraints of implementing tuition reduction methods. Plus, you will be able to create a plan to gain support and implement these strategies at your college or university.
