How Students Plan for College: Key Insights from a 2022 Survey

Before you design your strategy to attract and convert your prospective students, you want to understand what they think of higher education and how they plan for college or university.  

Modern Campus in partnership with Ruffalo Noel Levitz (RNL) conducted research on high school students across the United States to understand the expectations, questions and doubts they face when preparing for college—and how these factors influence their decision to choose a college. 

The report explores how early high school students start thinking about college, and how far they’re willing to travel for higher education. The study found that college and university websites are students’ primary sources for research. 

This infographic highlights the key stats from the study that can help you design your strategy to reach out to these students.  infographic-how-students-plan-college
