How eliminating bottlenecks improves response time and student retention
Higher education institutions face an ever-growing list of challenges. Inside Higher Ed’s latest survey of college and university admissions paints a grim picture: a majority of institutions failed to meet their enrollment goals in 2018. As in recent years, most admissions directors reported concern over filling the class.
In the race to secure best-fit students, paper-based, manual transcript capture and evaluation processes wastes precious time and resources, slows down admissions and transfer processes and stretches out the decision period — forcing students to wait weeks or even months for an answer on their admission, course equivalency and financial aid status.
Your institution’s ability to answer queries quickly and accurately could be the deciding factor on whether a student chooses to enroll in your school. Failing which, will cost you the term’s best-fit applicants, and could also be detrimental to your institution’s overall status and appeal.
Getting ahead of competing institutions begins with eliminating bottlenecks and inefficiencies in the admissions process.
This can be done by automating transcript capture and evaluation.
