These innovations demonstrate EducationDynamics' continued commitment to the needs of admissions and enrollment leaders and its focus on improving transparency and engagement to students and parents of students through advances in enrollment technology.

Schools can further customize the College Cost Calculator by incorporating details about their specific financial aid process through the EducationDynamics Financial Aid Assistant, providing a more transparent and seamless student experience as they consider enrolling in a college or university.
