This is a version of the white paper published through Career Education Review, and is a deeper look into the information presented by Tom King and Gregg Meiklejohn in the March 19th podcast ‘Organize A Quality Remote Admissions Program Quickly’. We hope this information helps.

As many schools rapidly shift to online operations in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Admissions teams are struggling to be effective when in-person interviews are not possible. Adopting a Virtual Admissions Best Practice process is, in our opinion, crucial in avoiding lulls in enrollment over the next few months. Virtual Admissions will mitigate the current disruption and also become the new normal when the dust settles.

Most schools were not prepared for this abrupt disruption in business processes. Your school doesn’t have to face this alone. There are many associations and businesses dedicated to making sure your school comes out the other side of this situation and is prepared for the demand waiting there.

Social distancing means many people are staying home, and while there, plenty of them will be thinking about their uncertain futures. For some, this will involve searching for new careers, upgrading their skills, or continuing education they paused in a better job market. Establishing effective Virtual Admissions processes now will help you to be there to support them. Let’s take a look at how we can help these new “Explorers” choose to upgrade their skills through your school. Read more

I was expecting a Shortage of Work layoff notice, but the long-term employees told me not to worry.

The pandemic has significantly disrupted the Enrollment Management Process. In this new world, very few Marketing, Admissions, and Retention best practices still hold up without innovative modifications.

Six months into this upheaval, schools now need to position themselves to weather the next storm — whatever that may be.
