Student recruitment success: Short, simple online inquiry forms work best
- Cedarville University… a form that’s brief enough to put right on the entry page for undergraduate admissions.
- Creighton University… the first really short form that I first found several years ago for traditional undergraduate students.
- Gannon University… a form for undergraduate admissions that includes an option to receive text messages right on the form.
- New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies… the only one that asks for response preference: email, phone or regular mail.
- Stony Brook University School of Professional Development requires only first and last name and email address. Phone number is optional.
- University of Ontario Institute of Technology… another school that requires only full name and email address,
- Wisconsin Lutheran College… the same form appears on each graduate program page: name, phone, email and space for a “Short Message.”
- Drexel University… people who search for “online graduate engineering and technology program” are rewarded with this 4-line inquiry form to “Request More Information.”
- Berklee College of Music… Complete this form in less than 30 seconds.
- University of British Columbia… You’ll see the entire beautifully simple inquiry form as soon as the page opens. Email is easiest but you can call or fax or use regular mail to contact UBC Continuing Studies.
- University of Wisconsin Stevens Point… Quick to view and complete but can be even simpler without date of birth and gender requests.
