What’s in the report

  • A Market Stress Test Score that tracks changes over time in these key market and financial components: your First year Market Price, 1st year to 2nd year Retention, 1st year Enrollment and the ratio of the Endowment to Operating Expenses. Each component derives from institutional data available from IPEDS.
  • A Comparison, which benchmarks your college or university against similar institutions based on IPEDS region and average first year enrollments
  • A Revenue Scenario generator that enables you to vary the key market and financial components.
