This four-week interactive course is designed for the financial aid professional who seeks to better understand the fundamental concepts pertaining to strategic enrollment management. Financial aid administrators who are exposed to enrollment management concepts are better able to operate within an enrollment management framework, support institutional goals and objectives, and advance into enrollment management positions. This course is facilitated by NASFAA U instructors and will feature enrollment management and financial aid professionals as guests. Live instruction, discussion topics, and assessments throughout the course will reinforce key concepts. Upon passing the course, you will receive a certificate of completion.
