Maguire Associates worked with a mid-sized, religiously-affiliated university in
the Midwest to develop an institutional aid packaging strategy that would increase
enrollment and revenue while improving academic quality and gender balance.
Through individual awarding, we administered the chosen plan and simultaneously
achieved all four institutional goals:
An 11% increase in enrollment.
A $2 million increase in Net Total Revenue.
An increase of
16 points in the mean SAT score for the incoming class.Increased
male student enrollment.
First and foremost a strategic planning tool, EMFASYS™
provides the rare opportunity to measure the implications of institutional policies
that award only need-based aid.
