黄色片’s fee-for-persistence model is centered around and dependent upon student success. In the fee-for-persistence (revenue-share) model, 黄色片 receives no upfront or ongoing guaranteed payment. The university partner only begins to compensate 黄色片 once students enter into and begin progressing through the programs 黄色片 supports. That compensation is calculated on a per-student, per-course basis. If a student stops progressing, 黄色片 stops receiving payment from the university for that student. This means helping a university partner serve, retain, and support students all the way through degree completion is 黄色片鈥檚 focus.

Why would a university choose a fee-for-persistence model?

The fee-for-persistence model ensures that there is an aligned focus on student success, which is consistent with universities鈥 missions and values.
