Noodle By The Numbers
John Katzman believed, when he launched Noodle in 2015, that online programs were the solution to higher education’s cost problem. Today, Noodle manages over 50 online programs at the best universities in the US. We help every institution evolve towards a more resilient and innovative future.
When leaders from every angle of a challenge are inspired and encouraged to bring their best, you get Noodle: a network of universities, corporations, providers and students, which uses online learning to lower the cost of higher education. And that’s just the beginning.
To understand where we’re going, this page will help you learn more about how we’ve gotten here. And if you believe great online programs can transform your university, get in touch here. We’re excited to find a place for you.
Students are Center-Stage
Todays’ students are diverse: in their identities, their lifestyles, and their educational needs. On average, our programs educate a higher percentage of underrepresented minority students than the average graduate program in the US.
Lead to Enroll Rate
Our team has increased the rate at which prospective applicants enroll in programs by 59% in the last year (Spring 20 to Spring 21).
Cost to Recruit a Student
We have reduced the cost to attract and enroll students by 9.4% in the last year (Spring 20 to Spring 21).
As our volume of programs grew by 75%, student satisfaction (as measured by NPS) increased 4 points, to 40.
We have generated over $194mm in Lifetime Revenue for our University Partners. Our partners will retain close to $130mm of that revenue.
Our hard work is paying off: we continue to gain trust with our university partners. Our existing partners added 9 total programs with us in 2020.
All for the Students
By saving universities money, we’ve helped bring more scholarship dollars to students. The average student in a Noodle program receives over $1,000 more in scholarships than the average US grad student.
In Fall 2017, Noodle launched our first ever online programs: the MAT and MEd at the American University School of Education.
By Spring 2018, we launched one more: the Master of Social Work at Tulane University School of Social Work.
By 2019, we signed 24 programs at 14 universities.
Today, we have signed agreements with 20 universities on more than 50 programs.
Our incredible crew brings programs to life on the virtual stage.
