A Powerful Promise:

3 Stories About 1 Yield Tool Making a Difference in the Lives of College Administrators & Students

Featuring guests:

  • Brianna (Loomis) Gallagher, LRAP Graduate
  • Greg King, Dean of Admissions at Illinois Wesleyan University


Why watch the short webinar about Ardeo's Loan Repayment Assistance Programs (LRAPs)? 

  • Hear from an LRAP graduate how the program helped her pursue her passions at her first-choice university and land her dream job after graduation.
  • Explore LRAP use cases from two enrollment professionals and see how others have integrated the program into their recruitment strategies.
  • Learn how LRAPs empower prospects to follow their dreams while advancing institutional goals for enrollment professionals. (Yes, LRAPs do both!)

LRAPs are an enrollment tool that improves access and recruitment by providing students with this powerful promise: If income after graduation is modest, LRAPs will help them repay their federal student, private alternative and parent PLUS loans.  

"While I had found a job in my field doing what I love, I owed more in bills every month than what I made. Making a little more than minimum wage while also trying to pay loans and monthly bills seemed nearly impossible. You know what did make it possible, though? The LRAP check I received every three months."

- Brianna (Loomis) Gallagher, LRAP Graduate

"In the three years since I joined Illinois Wesleyan and we chose to add LRAP to our toolbox, IWU has experienced its first total enrollment increase in more than 10 years, as well as two of our most diverse incoming classes."
