Tuition: Raise it, Lower it, or Stay the Course?

Last updated December 21, 2018

Maximize your institution’s enrollment and net tuition revenue goals by making better-informed decisions.

Overview

Join us for a webcast that will help you navigate the intricacies of tuition setting for undergraduate students in today’s unpredictable market. Those who are looking to educate their board and institutional stakeholders further on this topic, or who are in the midst of considering a tuition adjustment, will benefit from this webcast. We will help you answer the following difficult questions:

  • What are the tuition pricing models and strategies available to me? What are the risks and implications associated with each versus doing nothing?
  • How can I avoid a “one size fits all” approach and plan for the fact that a tuition adjustment will impact various student segments differently?
  • How can I educate/work with the board and other important stakeholders to make them effective partners?

Agenda

We will address the following three key points and highlight each with institutional examples:

  1. Risks and implications of different tuition pricing models. What are the options available for adjusting tuition? What are the risks and implications associated with each option that should be considered up front?
  2. Anticipating the impact of your tuition decision on various student segments. What data can be used to predict what the impact of a tuition adjustment on different student segments? (i.e. in-state vs. out-of-state, new vs. current students, students with different levels of financial need, etc.)
  3. Educating your board and other internal stakeholders. How can you educate the board and other internal stakeholders to help them better understand the relationship between tuition and net tuition revenue?
