Are you thinking of implementing continual enrollment at your school? Over the last few years, more and more schools are considering and have begun implementing continual enrollment. This move not only makes the process smoother for families, but can also reduce the workload of the re-enrollment process.

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from admission professionals who have implemented continual enrollment and hear about their successes and the challenges with implementing it at their school. The session will provide a roadmap for your school to implement continual enrollment from the timeline to messaging.
