According to Zacks Investment Research, "Tuition cuts and an unfavorable mix of students toward lower undergraduate tuition resulted in declining revenue per student over the past few quarters for Strayer Education. This trend is expected to continue in 2017. Revenue per student is expected to decrease between 1% and 2% in the second quarter of 2017. Also, shares of Strayer Education gained 12.7% year to date, underperforming 33.4% growth for the Zacks categorized School industry. However, Strayer University is reducing the cost of its programs in order to increase their affordability for students.

We believe a focus on the core Strayer University and various initiatives should drive long-term sustainable growth for the company.
