Students are looking for financial aid answers

Students are looking for financial aid answers during an incredibly difficult economic time.

Reported by Education Dive, a recent survey from Ithaka S+R indicated that roughly 50% of the 15,000 students surveyed were looking for more communication from their financial aid offices.

Because many students are concerned about both their aid and academic standing. They’re concerned about their ability to pay for school this fall, and they’re curious if their institutions are providing any financial flexibility in order to stay enrolled?

The takeaway? It’s not just about convincing your students to come back this fall. It’s about working with them to make sure they can afford to.

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