What happens at your institution when an accepted student is ready to join your community and says “yes” to your offer of admission?
Is your institution ready for them? The journey to student success (and retention) doesn’t begin when students arrive at your institution—it starts when they submit their deposit to your institution. How can admissions offices seamlessly “hand-off” new students to their colleagues across their institutions’ multiple divisions and departments in a way that helps students feel welcomed and supported? This session will address how a student-first strategy can help ensure that every new student has an equitable chance for success at their institution.
