A common understanding among businesses is that a satisfied customer engages in positive word-of-mouth communication that affects the bottomline of the business. It has been shown in various research that word-of-mouth recommendations from past students constitute a major source of influence on students' university choice. In spite of its importance, little work has been done to address student satisfaction issues in the higher education sector. This paper develops a model of student satisfaction with university services using three major theories of consumer satisfaction: expectancy-disconfirmation, equity, and attribution.
