Session Number: 10726
Date: Wed, Mar 6th, 2024
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Description:

Your students’ expectations are changing. Your primary competition is not necessarily who you think it is – you are competing with the ease of processes students encounter in everyday life. Students expect a consumer driven enrollment process. How are you changing your institution’s approach to using technology to support enrollment and student recruitment? Hear from California State University, Bakersfield on how they flip the script on inefficient scholarship management processes and did a 180 degree turn after implementing Ellucian’s ScholarshipUniverse solution.

What was the result? CSUB saw a surge in students qualifying for scholarships. Over 50% of scholarships no longer require students to fill out an application. Therefore, capturing a previously large untapped portion of their student body and increasing student diversity. Unspent funds plummeted from 20% down to 3%. Overall, easing the barriers of financial uncertainty for students and streamlining processes for staff dropping administrative tasks down from weeks to hours.
