[New York, NY] Meadow and SightLine, Inc. announced today a strategic partnership to increase price transparency and boost enrollment for colleges and universities.
The collaboration brings together two organizations focused on increasing enrollment through financial transparency. Meadow is modernizing the net price calculator and SightLine is a leader in financial aid leveraging and enrollment strategy.
“Most universities that we work with are struggling to attract the right students to their institution. One of the biggest deterrents to students are high published prices that don’t represent the real net price. We are excited to partner with Meadow to help universities communicate the real out-of-pocket cost to students, much earlier in the enrollment process,” says Ashley Kern, SightLine Founder and Data Scientist.
Cost is the number one factor for students considering where to attend college. Developing the right types of scholarships and offering competitive packages to the right students is critical to enrolling a quality incoming class, as is communicating that information to students as early in their process as possible.
Meadow and SightLine are combining the power of financial aid leveraging to optimize award allocations, with a modern net price calculator to communicate these scholarship opportunities to prospective students earlier, increasing applications and yield.
“Meadow believes that higher education is an important lever to economic mobility and we know that financial aid officers play a crucial role in making college affordable. We are excited about the work that Sightline is doing with universities through financial aid leveraging and know that combined with a better net price calculator, it will open up more opportunities for more students to obtain a college degree,” said Alfredo Brillembourg, CEO and Co-Founder of Meadow.
Meadow’s student-friendly tools use advanced personalization and modern consumer design to improve the financial experience for everyone–from institutions to the students they serve. MeadowPrice is the only net price calculator that is designed to be both accurate and student-friendly. Meadow Pay is the only solution that integrates student-friendly design with advanced personalization for a superior student billing experience. The company was founded in 2021 by recent graduates from Columbia University as well as second-time founders who have worked at AmEx, Klarna, Outschool and Amazon.
