At Swim Digital Group, we stand hand-in-hand with our clients, equipped with the knowledge and experience to move higher education institutions forward.

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. Amidst the changing industry, colleges and universities are also tackling new technologies, like customer relationship management systems, as a way to reach more students. These technology changes can often be the source of conflict between student and academic affairs.

Swim helps colleges and universities get back on the path to success and keep the focus by building and growing an ecosystem of innovative collaboration. Our work with higher education institutions addresses strategic issues such as process efficiency, strategic communications, digital marketing strategies, organizational effectiveness, and enrollment growth – all with the goal of making higher education a reality for more students across the US.

COVID-19 brought our Virtual Experience platform’s commencement section to the forefront. Like our core business model, a communications strategy will be created and implemented. This strategy is a series of email correspondence leading up to the event and a website designed to include the institution’s branding, graduate acknoledgements and a virtual cap toss with an interactive guest book. There is also a digital and downloadable program.


It is more critical than ever to integrate the faculty & staff within your institution. Swim offers an experience that will get the team excited about what is in store. We will create panel discussions, video content & collateral, host live speakers & guests in addition to a full communication plan, so that the faculty & staff will feel engaged as if in-person.

Uncertainty on how to honor students, faculty & staff is hanging over several institutions. From contact correspondence to live stream identification, Swim provides an all-inclusive experience. Family and friends will be part of their loved one’s special day with Swim’s virtual ceremonies.



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.
