New online directory is showing students their alternatives to college

A new online directory is helping show students their alternatives to college.

Reported by Education Dive, this Alternatives to College online directory is an attempt to help prospective students better understand their non-degree options that may be a better match for their current economic and timing situation, including bootcamps, apprenticeships, and more.

The takeaway? Rather than see this as a threat to higher ed, let us see it as a resource. One where we can understand our true competition, and can position our broader economic and non-economic value propositions against these growing alternatives.

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