TAKING HIGHER EDUCATION HIGHER

Swim partners with Colleges and Universities to provide scalable and sustainable solutions related to the acquisition, onboarding and retention of students. Our mission is simple: deliver realistic and actionable solutions that meet the unique needs of each institution.

UNITING THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE

There is more competition in the higher education industry than ever before. Not only do institutions need to excel in student engagement and learning strategies to compete for enrollment, but they also need to ensure that students are prepared for gainful employment after graduation. And amidst the changing industry, colleges and universities are also tackling new technologies, such as customer relationship management systems, as a way to reach more students. These technology changes can often be the source of conflict between the critical areas of student and academic affairs.

OUR APPROACH

By creating and developing an environment of innovative collaboration, Swim helps colleges and universities get back on the road to success and keep the emphasis on student success. Our work tackles topics such as process efficiency, strategic communications, digital marketing strategy, organizational efficiency and growth in enrollment, all with the goal of making higher education a reality for more students with our solutions.

STUDENT SUCCESS & RETENTION

More time and money are spent by colleges and universities on engaging and retaining students. The truth is that knowing and optimizing the processes and interactions for current students is more productive and cost-effective. It is much more than just a program. It is dedication, encouragement, guidance, services, and support. Swim understands what it takes to keep students happy and active, contributing to retention and re-enrollment.

ENROLLMENT MANAGEMENT

Finding, engaging and enrolling new students is not the same as it was five years ago. Your prospective students have more options and expect an experience that is personal, timely and relevant to them – not the institution. Swim helps to marry your existing resources to the demands of your prospective students.

VIRTUAL EXPERIENCES

Colleges and universities are dealing with just as much uncertainty as students about how to deliver services that are engaging and collaborative. The pressure can be daunting – but what Swim does is ensure that the experiences that your students are used to, come to life virtually. From ceremonies to open houses and info sessions, we have the technology, communication strategy and logistics support under control.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to apply for aid yearly?

Yes. If your financial circumstances changes, you may receive more or less aid. For example, your eligibility for financial aid could change significantly, especially if you have a different number of family members in college. Renewal of your financial aid package also depends on your satisfactory academic progress (SAP) towards a degree.

I probably don’t qualify for aid. Should I apply for aid anyway?

Yes. Many families mistakenly think they don’t qualify for aid and prevent themselves from receiving financial aid by failing to apply for it. There are a few sources of aid such as unsubsidized Stafford and PLUS loans that are available regardless of need, but you have to fill out a FAFSA to qualify. The FAFSA application is free, we recommend that everyone fill it out

Will financial aid cover all of my costs?

Maybe. In some circumstances, financial aid will cover the student’s full tuition and fees for the school year. However, it could only cover a portion. Once your FAFSA is processed and your award has been packaged, you will receive a letter outlining your full award.
