The Dysart Group offers enrollment management consulting regarding recruitment, financial aid, retention, pricing and revenue growth at colleges and universities. Representatives of The Dysart Group have worked with more than 170 colleges and universities in more than 35 states.  We have established literally dozens of all-time, historical record, new student enrollments; have significantly improved academic quality and have been able to reduce institutional discount rates by as much as fifty percent.

We offer a hands-on approach with our client institutions. Our purposely small client base ensures individual attention.  We work collaboratively with institutional representatives to meet specific headcount, revenue and academic quality objectives.  Consideration of the specific characteristics and mission of each college or university enables company representatives to construct action plans and implement changes that support the mission and institution-specific objectives of each client institution.

Regardless of the specific issues being addressed, our focus is always on the financial strength of the institution.  Our expertise on all issues related to financial aid, budgeting, revenue control and strategic financial planning ensures that all initiatives are implemented with specific consideration of net revenue and balanced revenue growth.

Representatives of The Dysart Group are not in the business of selling products.  Our goal is to provide expertise, advice and counsel.  Our emphasis is on accountability and reliability. We consistently deliver what we promise and effectively work in partnership with college and university representatives to achieve extraordinary results.
