Find the students you’re looking for

Connect with new leads and inquiries. Shepherd them through the application process. Help accepted students get started at your school. And all along the way, reporting and communication tools help you gauge how you’re doing, how you’ve done, and what’s coming next. Recruiting students for your school is a crucial job, and Populi helps you every step of the way.

One system, online

Web-based admissions means you can keep up with your leads wherever you are, whatever device you’re using. Meet new leads with online inquiry and application forms, or take an iPad to a recruiting event and enter them right into Populi. And once they’ve decided to attend, everyone—from the registrar to the financial aid office—will have all the information they need to get new students started at your school.

Keep up with your leads

Good communication makes for a better admissions process. Get the conversation started with embeddable Inquiry Forms and keep it going via text or email. Application questions let your applicants seek you out when they need help with the process. Communication Plans send pre-set series of emails, printed letters, and tasks. And when you run reports—say, applicants who might miss the deadline—you can email or text everyone with one click.


Learn about your applicants and prepare them for your school. Design applications that collect all the information you need—everything from contact info to third-party references. Customize them for different academic programs and purposes. You can embed application forms and get applicants started right from your website. Easily collect (or waive) application fees. And when you accept a new student, you can plug all that application info directly into their profile.


See where your Leads came from. See how everyone’s doing right now. See where you should go next. Create custom items (lead sources, application fields) and then find them in your reports. Do things like compare applicant answers on specific application fields. Or find out about the most (or least!) productive Lead Sources. The funnel report condenses all this data so you can see how far your Leads get into the Admissions process, letting you identify problem areas at any point.
