How does your college or university address prospective students’ concerns about cost and student loan debt?

Often, the prospect who says “I can’t afford your college” really means they are reluctant to borrow the student loans necessary to attend their first-choice school.

Watch the 30-minute webinar to learn how one university tackles those concerns with help from Ardeo’s Loan Repayment Assistance Programs (LRAPs).

Centenary College of Louisiana uses LRAPs to remove the fear of student loan debt and give prospects the confidence they need to enroll. Centenary’s Lauren Hawkins, Director of Admission, joined Ardeo’s Jonathan Shores, Ph.D., to discuss how they first began using LRAPs and how they have consistently used the tool to boost yield since 2016.
