Client Case Studies, Results, & Outcomes - Name Masked

Top public New England university desired to strategically use limited financial aid while achieving enrollment goals.

 

The University has used the Financial Aid Strategy Tool (FAST) since 2005 to increase NTR and quality. With FAST, Scannell & Kurz builds predictive enrollment models using institutional data, and then loads those models into a web-based simulation tool that clients can use to test the impact of alternative awarding strategies. Using this tool, this client has been able to direct aid funds to increase out-of-state representation (and therefore NTR), while also improving the quality profile.

 

Results of Our Work Together

The number of out-of-state freshman enrollees has grown from 914 in 2005, to 1174 in 2010. Average SAT has increased from 1187 in 2005, to 1221 in 2010.
