Decision Design in Education - Make It Easy

May 25, 2017 7:32:58 PM EDT / by John Fees

Have you ever noticed that in life - easy stuff get's done.  Making it easy for students to make good decisions is a cornerstone of a well-designed education.  For instance, placing a recylcing bin next to a garbage can just works.  People and students recyle when it's easy.  

This same theme has led GradGuard to design enrollment processes that are easy. When it comes to purchasing GradGuard's tuition or renters insurance benefits, we want it to be as easy as possible for students and their families to say yes.  No uncessary paper or mailings that don't reach people.  

Easy works.

In fact, our efforts to integrate an electronic enrollment process within the student

experience has rapidly grown student participation rates.  Some of our school partners have more than half of their students choosing to protect themselves with GradGuard's benefits.  Just take a look at how easy it is for a new student attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to enroll in renters insurance?

GradGuard's advanced technology platform makes it easy for colleges and univeristies to protect the students they serve while also verifying that each resident has acknowledge the institutions liabilty policy.  

It is great to see so many schools adopting this approach as a best practice within the student experience.
