The Way Students Engage Has Changed

Colleges and universities face a challenging enrollment landscape, fueled by demographic shifts and decreasing budgets. Meanwhile, today’s prospective students have more options for higher education than ever before – and their expectations are higher too. 

As they conduct their research and begin to interact with institutions, they expect a seamless and engaging experience with a clear path to enrollment. Today’s phone-averse prospective student has a ‘digital-first’ mindset and expects high-touch, digital engagement throughout the enrollment process. Does your institution utilize a sophisticated, multi-channel engagement strategy to meet the needs of today’s learners?

The Onward engagement platform was developed to give students the experience they crave. And a better student experience will empower your institution to stand out, keep prospects engaged, and help your enrollment team focus on students who are ready to take the next step.
