Coralville, IA (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
Bay Path College, an accredited private college headquartered in Longmeadow, Mass., announced it is partnering with higher education consulting firm Noel-Levitz to offer an online certificate in enrollment management. Integrated within Bay Path’s fully online Master of Science in Higher Education Administration (HEA), the certificate is designed to help college and university professionals develop and incorporate contemporary principles and practices in enrollment management.
Students who complete six core courses will receive professional certification in enrollment management from Noel-Levitz and can apply the courses to the full Master of Science degree in HEA from Bay Path. The master’s program consists of 12 online courses and has no residency requirement.
“This new partnership will provide current and aspiring leaders in higher education enrollment management with a nationally recognized program to expand their knowledge of leading recruitment and retention practices,” said Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Melissa Morriss-Olson at Bay Path. “It combines specialized course content based on the expertise of Noel-Levitz professionals with Bay Path’s experienced professors, state-of-the-art systems, and support network.”
The new program provides the latest knowledge and strategies for enrollment management. Applicable immediately to today’s higher education issues, the program’s curriculum focuses on six areas: introduction to enrollment management, financial aid, technology, marketing and recruitment, retention and student success, and strategic planning.
“This program can equip enrollment leaders at today’s colleges and universities to advance their institutions,” said Kevin Crockett, president and CEO, Noel-Levitz. “Armed with such insight, higher education professionals can better meet their enrollment goals and the accountability demands of a knowledgeable public.”
Bay Path College’s new graduate courses in enrollment management will open in October 2014 and be taught by expert course instructors selected by Bay Path in consultation with Noel-Levitz. All instructors have completed additional training in online instruction from Bay Path. Bay Path students will also have the opportunity to attend Noel-Levitz conferences, complementing the college’s online course format.
