    Good Customer Service Equals Happy Students at For-Profit Colleges

    Neal Raisman, the president of AcademicMAPS, a campus training program that focuses on campus enrollment and retention, wrote a blog about what he believes influences a students' decision to leave a college or university.

    "For the past six years, AcademicMAPS has studied why students leave college," Raisman writes. "The results have been rather constant over the years with a shift of a percentage point or two. It seemed to hold that 72% of all students left school for academic customer service focused reasons... Although it could be argued that the major shift in 'not worth it' is in part a financial decision. However the larger parts of the category do appear to be a combination of 'poor service and treatment' and 'College does not care.' These are combined with a sense of 'I am wasting my time' and money."

    On a positive note, Raisman assesses that good for-profit colleges are better at retaining students. Why? Because according to Raisman, a good for-profit college listens to and cares about its students. When the students are the focus, the school can better meet their wants and needs, and provide a good return on the investment in their education and future.

    Raisman, who is also a former college and university president, dean and faculty member, and the author of the best-selling book, “The Power of Retention," also writes that in addition to providing a solid education, there are two very important things that add to the overall good customer service provided by for-profit colleges:

    • "A quick 18 to 36 months to earn a degree"
      • "Real career and placement services that make a job probable, not just possible"
