Pride in Our Partnerships


Unparalleled client service is one of our core priorities. We strive to serve beyond client satisfaction, and achieving results is just one piece of that puzzle. We want to become partners to your success.

Nothing brings us more satisfaction for our hard work than great client feedback. Here are a few things our clients are saying about us this year:


We have enjoyed a 6+ year working relationship with Maguire Associates. They have helped us understand FA leveraging in a new way. They have been true partners in working to reach enrollment goals and exceptionally responsive to our needs.

Vaughn-college-of-aeronautics-and-technology-squarelogo-1448279076002Maguire Associates has been a trusted partner for Vaughn College for years. In the first year of our engagement, their EMFASYS model helped increase residential rates by 17%; the second-year model assisted in a ~60% improvement in our first-time freshmen cohort, with no increase in our discount rate, according to plan. Current-year results are equally promising.

While they have been pivotal in shaping our awarding strategy, we truly value the manner in which they go above and beyond in consulting. Their experience in restructuring our own data to reveal trends and insights has been invaluable and their team has had a positive impact to our admissions operations, overall. They add value beyond what’s in the four corners of a modeling contract.

I continued the relationship upon my arrival at Santa Clara in 2009 and they have been critical to our success this past decade. Their data analysis and predictive modeling help us plan our segmented admission targets with plenty of back-and-forth adjustments.

The financial aid office, through the Maguire process, is able to get our aid awards posted within two days after the admission decisions are released. That, in turn, allows them to focus more time working with students and families.

photoSeattle Pacific University wanted an outside review of tuition pricing options, and we solicited bids from a number of well-respected firms. Not only was Maguire’s bid among the most competitive, but they were able to do the work within a tighter time frame – due to our needs – than any of the others. After selecting them to work with, we were not disappointed! Their research team is top notch, and their project management efforts kept us on track throughout. We now have a clearer idea of our competitive landscape and are moving forward with plans for pricing and financial aid that will be better for students and better for our institution.

Denise Daniels, Associate Vice President for Strategic Initiatives


IUPUI's work with Maguire Associates has been tremendous in helping us better understand our financial aid and scholarship data and has provided us a more sophisticated strategic approach to ensure we are enrolling the right students and being better stewards of our dollars. Maguire has provided the analytics and insight needed for successful awarding strategies to better compete in today’s higher education market. The Maguire staff is dedicated to supporting our efforts and keeps us organized and on track and meets deadlines to maximize performance.
