Through phone or web-based meetings, Enrollment Coaches lead consultative coaching sessions with prospective students to determine the “why” behind their interest, understand their motivations and needs, connect them with valuable resources, and lead them through the steps of enrollment.  Our institutional partners count on Enrollment Coaches to be an extension of their own enrollment departments and to help meet student enrollment targets.
