A Free Course for Admitted Applicants
Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed
Every spring, colleges try new approaches to get the students they have admitted to actually enroll. A few colleges enroll most of the students they admit, but most colleges struggle a bit and enroll only a minority of those students.
Loyola University New Orleans is this year trying a new approach: letting some students who have been admitted take a three-credit course, free. The approach represents a conviction that nothing is better to sell Loyola than the experience of studying with a professor there.
