How 3 Colleges Increase Enrollment Among Non-Athletes with LRAPs

LRAP News October 25, 2021

Are you looking for a way to grow enrollment without adding another sport to your campus?
We love sports (and esports too!) but adding a new team may not provide sustainable growth at every campus. Addressing the #1 concern your students and families have – affordability – gives your prospects the confidence they need to enroll, and a way to boost yield year after year.

Often, the student who says “I can’t afford it” means they are reluctant to borrow the student loans necessary to attend your institution. Ardeo’s Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) is a safety-net that gives prospects confidence to borrow and enroll.

LRAPs are a flexible yield tool colleges and universities use to increase enrollment for targeted prospect pools. One way institutions use the program is to boost recruitment for non-athlete students.
