Enrollment Management Solutions provide a comprehensive ongoing assessment of your institution’s enrollment process. Hanover’s team of experts will evaluate the effectiveness of your current enrollment initiatives and pinpoint areas for improvement throughout your enrollment funnel, from targeting the right applicants to maximizing matriculation rates.
We help you answer key questions and develop strategies for success:
Where are the inefficiencies in our institution’s enrollment process?
How (and where) should we target our recruiting efforts?
Why did students decide not to matriculate and where did they attend instead?
What factors would have changed a non-matriculant’s decision to attend?
We will customize an approach for your institution that leverages the expertise of our team and multiple methodologies to support your institution’s goals.
Pre-Enrollment Funnel Dashboard
Evaluate the health of the current enrollment process.
Studies an institution’s inquiry-to-matriculation pipeline and unpacks where an institution is performing well and where (and more importantly why) it is encountering enrollment inefficiencies.
Geomarket Opportunity Dashboard
Target the optimal applicant pool.
Geographically maps where an institution is sourcing its applicants across the country, defines attractive student profiles via key demographics, and spots new untapped geographic regions to target recruiting efforts.
Enrollment Choice Survey
Maximize applicant completion and student acceptance.
Provides a customized online survey of matriculants and/or non-matriculants to assess matriculation drivers, gauge the relative strength of an institution’s brand, and spot institutional opportunities for improvement.
Identify annual and longitudinal enrollment trends
Scan for potential drivers of enrollment inefficiencies
Visualize geographic recommendations for targeted recruitment
Our goal for the coming year is to examine a variety of proposed academic offerings and cost models to determine the best opportunities for tuition revenue and head count growth over the next two years. We had previously engaged other research partners but had grown disappointed in their “cookie cutter” approach with assumptions about the marketplace. In determining who to select as our research partner, we conducted an internal assessment of the upcoming projects and analyzed which partner could offer both unique research and access to existing similar research. Hanover’s ability to bundle all projects for a total cost less than what would be charged by other competitors made this an easy decision.
