Admitted Student SurveyA data-driven approach to boost student enrollment

With so many options, what drives students to attend your institution?

Not all students admitted to your institution will enroll, but there are steps you can take to improve their experience and increase the likelihood that they will. One of the most important steps for increasing your enrollment yield is gathering feedback from admitted students — both those who do and don’t enroll — to learn the factors and experiences that shape their decisions.

Hanover’s analysts have crafted a comprehensive survey to gather insights about the factors that influence whether or not your admitted students enroll. Your institution’s results are also benchmarked against other colleges and universities nationally for a comparative view of your matriculation strengths and challenges. Together, these findings provide you with a road map to increase completed applications and maximize acceptance rates.
