IOWA CITY, IA: College Raptor, a leading provider of innovative financial aid and student recruitment solutions, announced it is now partnering with over 200 colleges and universities, a significant milestone for the 6-year old Iowa company.
NPC and Enrollment Services Continue to Grow
The education and financial tech company, which also annually helps over 7 million students discover great, affordable colleges via CollegeRaptor.com, was founded by Stanford-educated data scientist and tech entrepreneur William Staib. The company uses artificial intelligence to build best-in-class net price calculators, predictive modeling, and financial aid optimization tools that help college enrollment and financial aid offices across the country.
“Campuses have had extra challenges and pressure this year due to the pandemic, and we’ve been working harder than ever to help them,” said Staib. “Now more than ever, colleges need to find the ‘right’ prospective students and effectively communicate their school’s affordability and value. Raptor’s tools are simple to use and deliver the best, most accurate insights in the industry.”
In a recent survey, over 99% of College Raptor’s partners said they’d recommend its services to their colleagues at other colleges, and more than 98% of campus partners continue working with College Raptor upon renewal.
“College Raptor’s responsiveness in launching our NPC was second-to-none. I’ve never worked with a third-party provider that wanted to get the product live so quickly while balancing quality of deliverable assets,” said Jonathan Barr, Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing for Spring Arbor University in Michigan.
Creating transparency around college costs helps students and parents make smarter decisions about paying for college, and College Raptor uses advanced data modeling to help institutions maximize the impact of their financial aid dollars.
“My overall experience with College Raptor has been amazing. The consultants are so easy to work with and responsive to the ever-changing needs of my campus,” said Ashley Edens, Director of Financial Aid at Tusculum University in Tennessee. “College Raptor is very knowledgeable and brings years of experience tracking enrollment trends and data analysis to the table to assist with enrollment at my campus. I would recommend any of their products to my colleagues at other schools.”
“From development, through implementation, to current day we have been impressed with College Raptors responsiveness,” said Tim Bakula, Director of Financial Aid at the University of Northern Iowa.
“Colleges need partners that listen and adapt quickly to the changing environment. Our steadfast dedication to service, reliability, and products are helping both colleges and students succeed while earning us more partnerships,” said Staib. “I am thankful for our college partners and proud of the Raptor team for achieving this important milestone. I am also excited about what’s next for Raptor as we continue to grow and deliver on our novel approach to enrollment management.”
