Now that Rose State College has been using Mutara's Application for Admission solution for several years, how are they doing? We compiled the statistics and are pleased to report impressive results from both the student enrollment and back office perspective.
Increased Enrollment and Applicant Volume
In the 2 years that Rose State College has been using Mutara for its applicants, new student enrollment increased by more than 5% over their old solution. By contrast, new student enrollment at Community Colleges contracted by 39% in that same timeframe (as reported by the National Student Clearinghouse).
Through Mutara, Rose State College increased the number of submitted applications by 29% in that same timeframe. This increase is attributable to the streamlined applicant experience that is tailored specifically for Rose State College's programs and student demographics. This improved experience reduces the applicant effort by 78% over the prior solution.
Finally, Mutara helped Rose State College increase admissions yield. This is due to an improved applicant experience, a streamlined admissions process; and improved candidate engagement throughout the admissions process.
