Determine how schools can support more students while ensuring financial sustainability
Both students and schools today are struggling with financial decisions. Students are overwhelmed with the options to finance their education and are often left with no good options to secure their education. Institutions are trying to make the best use of limited funds, oftentimes being unable to serve all the students they want to.
Utilize ISAs to support and align student and institutional success, at the same time
ISAs are a financial solution that enable schools to help more students enroll and stay in school while also supporting institutional financial objectives. Thoughtful ISA programs can eliminate the painful trade-off between access and sustainability so many higher education leaders face, and serve as a powerful complement to other student success initiatives.
How ISAs Impact Schools and Students
Vemo helps institutions reach their access and affordability objectives with ISA programs.
ISAs in Action
Let's see how they work.
Strategic Access Initiatives
Strategic Tuition ISAs:
Institutions are using ISA programs to signal valuable outcomes that differentiate their programs and increase enrollment.
Degree Specific ISA Programs:
Institutions are using ISA programs to attract students to under-enrolled degree programs by eliminating financial barriers to enrollment and aligning cost and value.
Come Back and Complete:
Institutions are using ISA programs to attract and enroll adult students who have some college credit, but no credential by using a non-loan alternative that links directly to their post completion success.
Retention and Completion Programs
Last Mile Funding:
Institutions are using ISAs as an alternative to high cost private student loans to fill the gap, as the amount of unmet need continues to grow.
Financial Aid Appeals:
Institutions are complementing their institutional appeals process with ISAs so they can help more students and diversify the options available to students.
Summer & Intercession Terms:
Institutions are using ISA programs during summer or intercession terms to help students stay on track, catch up, or accelerate completion.
Equity and Inclusion Programs
Non-Title IV Eligible
Institutions are using ISA programs to help students who have exhausted or are otherwise not eligible for Title IV financial aid or in an ineligible program.
Institutions are using ISA programs to reach unique populations of students for whom current funding options are not a good fit, such as those with strong aversion to traditional loans.
