IOWA CITY, IOWA (PRWEB) JULY 06, 2016
College Raptor and TWG Plus announced a partnership today that will enable TWG Plus’ campus partners to use College Raptor’s fast and mobile-friendly net price calculator.
“College cost is critically important when students and parents are researching higher education options, but that information is often hard to find,” said Bill Staib, CEO of College Raptor. “We created a net price calculator that is optimized for mobile and is faster to use than other options out there. That means more students and parents can access and complete it. Everybody wins.”
Colleges and universities use net price calculators to help students and parents understand the actual cost of attendance – the sticker price less grants and scholarships the student may qualify for. Each student’s net price can vary significantly based on the school’s financial aid policies and the student’s academic qualifications and financial circumstances.
College Raptor’s net price calculator takes students about 3 minutes to complete, while completing most others takes students between 10 and 20 minutes.
“TWG’s partnership with College Raptor allows us to further strengthen the focus on our core end-to- end marketing solutions for education institutions while offering clients a robust net price calculator. We researched the market and found that College Raptor had the best solution. These colleges will benefit from the best of both worlds,” said Christine Wyatt, CEO of TWG Plus.
The College Raptor net price calculator is built to integrate seamlessly into a college’s website and is customized to work with any college’s approach to financial aid. “Over 70 percent of students who start using one of our calculators complete it, which is about double the completion rate of competing calculators,” said Staib. “This helps students discover how affordable a college education can be. We also allow students to request information from the college admissions office directly from the calculator, something that helps both the students and the college.”
