Are the colleges calling fall for online-only simply the ones who can?
Reported by Education Dive, the ivy league and elite schools making the early decisions for an online-only fall may have the confidence that their students will accept the decision, and be able to learn in that online environment.
Whereas, some institutions more dependent on tuition revenue may be admittedly nervous about the financial reality of losing students unwilling to pay full tuition for an online-only experience. They also may not be confident they can provide a great online-only experience just yet.
The takeaway? Making the fall call for online-only isn’t quite as easy as looking at the data and saying, “We’ll make this work.” Especially for those who aren’t sure they’ll be able to.
May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
