For the Admissions Office:
Every admissions office needs to become more efficient and creative in delivering products and services to prospective students and their families. Often admissions offices conduct business "status quo" from one year to the next making few changes in their recruitment, communication, marketing, and enrollment plans. Scott Healy & Associates provides an "experienced outsiders evaluation" of all aspects of the admissions operation, its coordination with the Office of Scholarship and Financial Aid, in combination with the student’s "First Year Experience", so critical to retention into the second year of study.
Institutional Retention Studies:
Retention of students on a college campus is every person’s responsibility. However, there is often no one person or office that is responsible, focused, or totally accountable in increasing the retention rates, graduation rates, or improving time to graduate rates of all students on campus. Many offices are, in part, responsible for creating an environment, which is intended to increase retention and graduation rates of all students.
Scott Healy & Associates is experienced and very capable of conducting an Institutional Retention Evaluation. This evaluation will outline the specific areas with the institution where retention programs need to be developed, altered, changed, and improved. Working hand-in-hand with the institution, Scott's firm will develope new ways to approach retention challenges while making sure that the College/University is enrolling the “right students” in the first place.
