Anthology Apply Propels Coppin State University to Highest Admission Yield in Half a Decade

Coppin State University (CSU), an Anthology client, has reported an impressive 5-year high in admission yield after implementing the company’s innovative admissions-focused CRM solution, Anthology Apply, at the start of the fall 2021 recruitment cycle. CSU saw a distinct increase in applicants who went on to be admitted to the institution (46 percent vs. 41 percent prior year), as well as a significantly higher rate of admitted students who went on to enroll (29 percent vs. 19 percent prior year). As a result, the overall admission yield saw a sizable uptick in total applicants who went on to enroll in the institution for fall 2021 (13 percent vs. 8 percent prior year).

Looking beyond the substantial year over year improvements, the story is extremely positive for CSU and Anthology Apply. Prior to the COVID-related dip that many institutions saw in fall 2020, the admission yield for CSU had shown a downward trend over the past few years, with the number of admitted students who went on to enroll in the institution dropping several percentage points. Now, with Apply working to engage applicants and admitted students in improved and more personalized ways, the trend has not only changed direction, but has also exceeded CSU’s admission rates for the last five years.

“We knew that a more personalized experience would get better results—it’s very satisfying to see these improved numbers and know our implementation of Anthology Apply played a key role in our current year’s success,” said Dr. Ahmed El-Haggan, CSU’s vice president of information technology and CIO. “This is a good start. I am optimistic the momentum will continue as we implement Anthology Succeed, helping us improve communications and engagement for the current student population as well.”

Anthology Apply is a CRM built for higher ed admissions that can help build stronger relationships with prospects and applicants beginning with the first interactions and building from there. With fully connected data and robust analytics tools at your fingertips, this solution can lead to better recruitment, advisement and empowerment so you can retain your student body and help them succeed.
