Is the enrollment growth fight about to get even crazier?

Is the enrollment growth fight about to get even crazier?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, the National Association for College Admission Counseling is under pressure from the Justice Department to remove “antitrust” provisions that could be seen as limiting student choice.

This would remove the May 1st “Decision Day” provision, and allow colleges to continue soliciting students even after they’ve made a different decision. This would also allow colleges to begin making special finance offers early in the admission process, including housing, scholarship, and financial aid offers for early decision makers.

The takeaway? In what is already a hyper-competitive enrollment market, the game may be about to get even crazier.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
