About Wiley University Services
Wiley University Services is an extension of our university partners. Universities rely on us to help them acquire students, produce more graduates, and deliver better education outcomes. We partner with corporations, organizations, and community colleges to provide access to education programs to upskill and grow their workforces.
About the Role:
A critical part of our success, an Enrollment Counselor represents a partner university and serves as a guide for prospective online students as they navigate the application and enrollment processes. As an Enrollment Counselor, you become a student prospect’s primary point of contact leading up to admission, and you are counted on to provide thorough information about a school’s degree programs. You will serve as a link to other departments for students’ questions about topics like transcripts, tuition, and transferring credits. As an Enrollment Counselor, your ultimate responsibility is to support prospective students in pursuing their educational goals.
You can expect to connect with approximately 100+ prospective students a day (via phone, email, text or webchat), all of whom have requested information about one of our university partners prior to you connecting. At any one time, you will help guide prospect students through the enrollment and admissions processes, helping them understand their degree program options and lead them through the various admissions processes, right up until they begin taking classes. You will maintain an active student roster that aligns with a partner and business-specific goals and team averages.
