New Academic Programs

Align Expenses for Renovations and Equipment to Future Enrollment Revenue

To attract new students in a competitive landscape, colleges and universities are constantly evaluating existing offerings and exploring new academic programs that will increase enrollment. Whether expanding existing program offerings or developing new majors, schools are often challenged by the investments required to support these programs prior to realizing the revenue that is generated. Our ability to develop funding solutions that align new program expenses to future enrollment revenue helps stabilize cash-flow and accelerate new program investments.

As you continue to grow and develop new academic programs, it is often necessary to align upfront expenses (such as capital improvements and the purchase of new assets) with the future arrival of projected new tuition revenues to improve cash flow. That's why step financing solutions and deferred payment options are becoming more common strategic finance structures for schools to achieve that goal.
