Financial Aid Consulting Services
Financial Aid Done Right
Financial Aid Compliance and Risk Assessment
Too often, assessment reviews are only considered as a reaction to a crisis event, such as a federal program review or an external audit. While Third Coast Higher Education is a valuable resource for these needs, our assessment approach for admission and financial aid offices is built to improve the efficiency and performance of the organization by locating areas for improvement.
With a myriad of responsibilities, most enrollment management managers do not have the capacity to develop a deep understanding of the systems that are the engine for the admission and financial aid operations. As a result, there are opportunities for improvement that have not been explored. Whether the focus is on system implementation or a re-implementation and re-engagement, Third Coast Higher Education combines the practitioner and analyst roles, to plan and execute operational improvement through advanced use of your system.
Strategic Planning and Change Management
An effective admission, retention or financial aid strategy requires effective planning and collaboration on a campus. Often, the exercise is derailed by conflicting prioritiesand lack of time. Third Coast Higher Education can provide the direction and momentum to develop and employ an effective enrollment plan, focusing on both enrollment and retention outcomes, coupled with key financial aid strategies to manage the institution’s resources to achieve the campus goals.
Interim Financial Aid Staffing
All associates of Third Coast Higher Education are active enrollment management professionals. This allows our firm to augment an institution’s transitional staffing by serving in interim roles leading enrollment management, admission and financial aid offices. While engaged in an interim capacity, Third Coast Higher Education associates provide planning, assessment and operational improvement.
