Adult Learner Recruitment

Harness next-generation growth strategies to recruit, enroll, and serve graduate and adult learners

As traditional undergraduate enrollment continues to decline, revenue from graduate, online, professional, and adult degree completer programs has never been more critical to your financial sustainability. Graduate enrollment is growing much faster than projected, but not all institutions are benefitting from this growth.

Our Adult Learner Recruitment partners see 18% graduate growth on average and a 6:1 average return on their investment in just one year of partnership.
