Apelles' Student Retention Program (SRP) is an example of one of the special services Apelles provides to the Higher Education Market. This unique program is designed to establish contact with former students who did not graduate to get them reenrolled in school with a plan for achieving their graduation goals. Benefits for the university:
1) Promotes goodwill and sense of individualized caring from the university offering students a second chance.
2) Increases enrollment for university organically without the additional cost of marketing or advertising.
3) Upgrades the debt owed by turning former students who have left school into graduates, while also establishing open lines of communication and contact information with the students.
4) Statistics show that students who return to school are much less likely to drop again.
