Return on investment


For many schools, legislatures and other stakeholders expect results for their investment. Let's consider a hypothetical example: A large university or school district can have an annual budget of $250M to cover all of the expenses, including buildings, grounds, teachers, administrators, etc. and they might produce 3,700 graduates a year.

With a little math, we can see that each graduate costs ~$67,000!


If we could use Delphinium to improve the graduation rate by just 1%, 37 more students would graduate a year, lowering the costs per graduate by $670 which would result in $2.5M spent more efficiently EVERY year!


If we want to use a more conservative estimate and improve graduation by just .1%, the result is still $250K spent more efficiently every year.


The investment in Delphinium has a clear connection to being a better steward of the resources we manage for our stakeholders, and more important, Delphinium yields a better investment in our students!


 Yearly fees vary by number of full-time equivalent students (FTE) enrolled at your institution:
