Fresh Look - Higher Ed - Admissions
Current disruptions are causing College Admissions to pivot quickly to assess the incoming class for 2020-21. It’s time for a Fresh Look in Admissions.
Facing Admissions uncertainty, NACAC has provided some incredible resources to navigate the new normal. Now, more than ever, your institution is counting on you to engage the incoming class of students in new ways. As you lead continuous change, do you have the right tools to support you?
Any operational inefficiencies within admissions, or between peer offices, can not only hinder your ability to attract new students, but retain them as well.
Many higher ed Admissions offices are embracing an Enterprise Content Management system (ECM) integrated tightly with their chosen CRM and the institution’s Student Information System to streamline the applicant record and every prospect process. With a complete digital student record, you can improve communication with prospective students and other campus departments. Your documents and forms need to be digitally available to your peer offices like never before. Whether you know what ECM is or not, already leverage ECM or remain wholly reliant on paper-based processes, hearing how these institutions are bringing digital transformation to the Admissions Office, is beneficial.
With Etrieve, we were able to set up our online forms so students are only able to see the information they need to see, depending on what type of student they are. That’s helped students understand how to fill out the residency form, and it has streamlined our process by eliminating paper. Students now complete the form online and upload their documents. Their information automatically imports into Etrieve—which is an awesome thing.
