The speakers will discuss how they budget in a net tuition revenue model, as well as goals for the advancement and enrollment departments.

Learning Objective: Participants will learn how to present and discuss the concept of net tuition to their finance committees and Board of Directors, and will learn a pathway to transition to this alternate financial model.
