Boost Yield for Targeted Populations

Looking to increase yield for first-gen students or those with financial need? Want to boost the number of students in your education major?

Target groups of students to boost yield among specific populations. Examples include specific majors, students with unmet need, transfers, and more. We can help you leverage your predictive modeling tools to identify students for whom LRAP would make a tipping-point difference.

How do colleges use LRAPs to increase yield for specific populations? Check out the case studies below:

Changing “No” to “YES!” with LRAPs

Butler University in Indianapolis first began using LRAPs for the 2022-23 cohort, targeting Pell-eligible students in Indianapolis Public Schools and for financial aid appeals. For the 2023-24 cohort, Butler decided to expand their usage by targeting College of Education, honors waitlist and transfer students, as well as other select student groups.

What Administrators Are Saying

“We brought this product on about 30 days before COVID hit. [LRAP] was one of those things that we were really happy to have. This was a difference for a lot of students that we spoke to. Gave them a lot of peace of mind during a time in the world when there was very little peace of mind.”

Aaron Roberts

Director of Undergraduate Admissions & Operations, Concordia University, Nebraska

What Students Are Saying

“If not for LRAP, I would have compromised a lot. I would have compromised on the education I wanted. I would have compromised on the school I wanted. Ultimately, I would have compromised a lot in my life. LRAP set that expectation for me to follow my dreams, and that’s been the expectation I’ve had throughout my career.”
