Sustainable Pricing:
Understanding the Market

Should we change our published price or our discount rate?
What happens if we don’t?

The pandemic disruption has accelerated the need to create new strategies to better serve students while increasing university sustainability.

To help institutions create long-term tuition and award strategies, we are now offering Strategic Pricing & Competitive Marketplace Reports.

Is our tuition rate sustainable?

We have quantified how unsustainable current trends in higher education are (a trend many have speculated). With our Strategic Pricing & Competitive Marketplace Report, we can provide a baseline for your institution to begin to create a long-term tuition and discounting award strategy from a holistic view.  

Whitepaper: A case for change

Our free whitepaper, A Case for Change, outlines the data-based, nation-wide research we have done. We illustrate nation-wide trends on yield rates, the impact of discounting, and rising costs of tuition. Learn from the data connections we've made and begin discussions at your institution on the best strategies during this time.
