We focus primarily on adult degree completion programs, an area in which our extensive experience has driven thousands of student enrollments to our college partners. myFootpath’s expertise in recruiting and enrollment has improved enrollment rates up to six times over traditional methods. Our background in college counseling and best-in-class customer relationship management systems combines personalized service with a data driven enrollment process to generate students that persist and graduate.

Retention Services

myFootpath works with college partners to help them retain students.  As part of the retention process, we collaborate with schools to help them build trusted relationships though savvy deployment of technology and follow-up.
