Infographic: The Power of Online and Mobile Student Applications

Posted December 20, 2016

Online and mobile student applications can dramatically improve the accessibility, equity, and efficiency of the school enrollment process. With 1 in 5 Americans relying on their smartphones for internet access — particularly in lower-income communities — mobile tools can help ensure that all parents can easily access online school applications. At SchoolMint, nearly half of families use our mobile tools, and many others benefit from translation to 17 different languages. This accessibility, combined with a much faster application process, make school enrollment easier for parents and schools alike.

See our infographic below for findings from nearly 2 million student applications submitted through SchoolMint‘s cloud-based school enrollment platform.
