Watch our most recent webinar with Illinois Wesleyan University to learn how they are supporting their mission by offering students a powerful promise.

In this 30-minute discussion, we discussed how Loan Repayment Assistance Programs (LRAPs) have helped Illinois Wesleyan recruit targeted prospects who are the right fit for the institution – but may have hesitated to enroll due to fear of student loans.

Why watch the webinar?

  • Hear directly from Greg King, IWU’s Dean of Admissions and AVP for Enrollment Management, about why they decided to implement LRAPs and how they have made a difference in the lives of their students.
  • Learn how LRAPs can help you flip enrollment decisions from “no” to “yes” and improve access to your institution.
  • Get a quick overview of different LRAP strategies – from offering the program to select students, to targeting strategic prospect populations – and take home the information you need to help bring the program to your campus!

“It is a huge relief to know that I will be covered by LRAP if something happens. It’s like a bunch of super fluffy mattresses have been placed under me instead of the hard and rocky ground.”  – IWU LRAP Award Recipient

What are loan repayment assistance programs and what do they do? LRAPs provide students and families a powerful promise: If income after graduation is modest, a student’s LRAP will help them repay their federal student, private alternative and parent PLUS loans.
