Transfer students are another water cooler conversation. I have helped colleges and universities double the number of transfer students in the past. The art of recruiting transfer students begins with signing articulation agreements with community colleges, building relationships with PTK chapters, and automating the transfer credit process. In addition, transfer students seek outcomes and an easy transition. These elements must be present from the beginning of the student’s journey to its conclusion. However, the persona of this population is also changing. Perhaps universities will look at a more significant number of Hispanic students progressing onto their institutions. As a cohort, it’s just another population that needs customer services today at colleges and universities, pointing to more economic resources that need to be deployed.
Jose Flores Manhattanville talking about student systems: Data analysis can lead universities to deploy target marketing. In April 2017, I wrote an article on LinkedIn alerting colleges and universities to embrace techniques that most appeal to this new generation of students. A generation of students that have access to the internet 24/7 and they prefer that access be mobile. This change is forcing colleges and universities to develop clean digital footprints, which include being visible and active on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Snapchat, and now TikTok. Although immersed in the online world this generation demands individual attention, which has become a difficult task to manage in environments where there are large numbers of students. Today, leveraging workflow and technology gives colleges and universities an edge in making a student experience personal when they visit the campus.
At one point in my career, I was asked to increase a college’s international student population from 5% to 25%, a feat that I was able to accomplish in 3 years. Since then, I have helped build 5 international pathway programs on college campuses. I also created a network of international agents in various countries around the world. These pathway programs generated over thousands of students for colleges and universities. I’ve recruited international students domestically in foreign embassies, American and international schools abroad, international university partnerships, agents, and third-party providers. I’ve led panels at regional, state organizations, and international organizations on the best practices for recruiting international students. Most recently, I built three virtual international communities in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and South America allowing colleges and universities to recruit students from these regions.
Jose Flores Manhattanville talking about college financial aid: International students may have the best luck getting aid at some of the country’s top-ranked colleges and universities, which tend to be more liberal with their financial assistance. Of the 10 schools that awarded the highest average aid to international students, more than half are ranked among the top five National Liberal Arts Colleges or National Universities. The bad news for international students is that while these schools tend to be the most generous, they are also among the most selective.
The College went from 600 full time undergraduates and 500 graduate students to about 3000 total students (1800 Undergraduate and 1200 Graduate students). I’ve worked with university system like the University of Massachusetts-Boston in June 2019 to help them bring in a class for September 2019. I played the role of lead consultant in this engagement. The results of the consulting engagement lead the University of Massachusetts-Boston to surpass enrollment for that year by 100 students. The difference in strategies in both time periods, although at its core similar, was dramatically different in its deployment. Today, managing a domestic admissions funnel requires the ability to interlace marketing initiatives that use SMS, email, genuine video content, and social media retargeting to both parents and students while creating memorable experiences for these families on campus. At the core of these new strategies, no different than in the past, was the ability to build relationships with students and families and prequalify interest, issues, and intent.
