ACPHS In The News

Recruiting Near and Far 

November 17, 2023

The Enrollment Management team, in partnership with many members of our campus community, has been hard at work this fall introducing the latest class of prospective students to all that ACPHS has to offer.   

Armed with a new slate of branded program cards encompassing all 12 undergraduate and graduate programs, the admissions counselors have traveled extensively covering 418 events at high schools and college fairs since the beginning of September. This included a trip to a HETS’ (Hispanic Educational Technology Services) Student Experience Summit in Puerto Rico and to Interamerican University who is seeking online information pharmacy sessions for its students.  

EM has also added a refreshed mini viewbook to its arsenal for students to see the breadth of our program portfolio. The piece introduces students to the career paths they can take with our programs based on their interests and then drives them to our recently updated web program pages to learn more and apply.  

In addition, this fall, the EM team exceeded expectations by demonstrating a 50% year-over-year increase in attendance by facilitating two highly successful open house events. The campus welcomed more than 120 students from diverse backgrounds in 11 states, including Wisconsin and Florida.  

The EM team also supported last week’s Future Health Professionals, formerly known as Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) conference. ACPHS faculty collaborated with conference organizers to make this critical inroad to showcase our College. We were able to capture 84 leads from students who came from Long Island, New York City and Western New York who toured our campus and attended afternoon breakout sessions.  

Last week, the team welcomed to campus nearly 20 local high school counselors, principals and vice principals, new visions teachers and stem teachers for a breakfast. The event provided an opportunity to thank them for their partnership, served as an information session and allowed them to connect with our faculty and other educators in the area.  

Results Thus Far 

With applications up 62% from this time last year, acceptance letters have started dropping weekly.  

After the holidays, the team will prepare for the very busy spring season. Multiple efforts will be employed to keep accepted students engaged and encourage enrollment deposits which are due by May 1, 2024.
