Frederick, MD (Vocus) May 22, 2008
Regent Education, the leading provider of financial aid management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for higher education institutions, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with the Foundation for California Community Colleges to enable California’s Community Colleges to easily acquire and deploy the Regent Enterprise financial aid management solution.
The Foundation for California Community Colleges signed a 5-year blanket purchase agreement with Regent to provide the 109 institutions consisting of more than 2.6 million students per year in the California Community Colleges system with the opportunity to implement Regent Enterprise. The negotiated contract offers each California Community College with a fixed, all-inclusive price encompassing all software licensing, implementation and training.
As the first SaaS solution available for this market, Regent Enterprise supports multiple Pell IDs and/or multiple campuses, all from a single database, enabling the colleges to have a complete enterprise view. Additionally, Regent’s on-demand solution will provide the participating colleges with automatic, real-time upgrades insuring compliance with state and federal regulations, rapid deployment, and a technology platform that will grow as they do.
“The Foundation is committed to providing California Community Colleges with services and benefits that are vital to their missions, and to helping them enhance the student experience,” said Paul Lanning, Ed.D., the Foundation for California Community College’s President and CEO. “Regent is a best-of-breed company with a solution that will help us accomplish both objectives. Once a college implements the Regent product suite, campus financial aid administrators will be able to dedicate more time to serving students – the number one priority for both the colleges and the Foundations.”
The Foundation for California Community Colleges is a unique non-profit organization that benefits, supports, and enhances California’s Community Colleges. As the official nonprofit auxiliary organization partnering with the California Community Colleges Board of Governors and System Office, the Foundation develops programs and services that save millions of dollars for colleges and students, promotes excellence in education, and provides valuable learning opportunities for students throughout the state. The Foundation also supports the system through special initiatives, statewide awards, and direct donations to the colleges and the Network of California Community College Foundations.
