As a truly community-focused college, student service is our number one priority
Frederick, MD (Vocus) July 30, 2008
Regent Education, the leading provider of financial aid management Software-as-a-Service solutions for higher education institutions, today announced Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) has selected Regent Enterprise as its financial aid management solution.
BCCC selected Regent Enterprise to establish repeatability and ensure the compliance of its financial aid management process. Regent's on-demand, turnkey solution enables the college to remain compliant with real time delivery of the latest federal and state regulations and updates. The on demand solution also provides reduced reliance on IT, lower cost of ownership, an accelerated implementation program, and a secure IT infrastructure. Regent Enterprise's web-based, open architecture also ensures that the system will scale with any future technology needs the institution may have as it grows.
Serving primarily the residents and business community of Baltimore, BCCC is a state-sponsored comprehensive two-year degree-granting college with two main campuses and satellite locations throughout the city. With its broad range of degree and certificate programs, affordable tuition, and extensive outreach, BCCC offers educational opportunities at all levels to the citizens of Baltimore and the state of Maryland that enable students to obtain good jobs, transfer to four-year colleges, or take short-term training to upgrade their skills or acquire new ones.
"As a truly community-focused college, student service is our number one priority," said Levone Ward, BCCC CIO. "We have students from all walks of life pursuing various career paths--from nursing to accounting to website development," he said. "As such, our students receive highly diverse, sometimes complicated financial aid packages. On our side, Regent will allow us to more efficiently manage this process, and its Student Self Service Portal will allow our students to easily manage their financial aid without having to waste more time in the financial aid office."
Regent's Student Self Service Portal, which may be deployed on its own or integrated with an institution's existing student portal, lets students manage their financial aid and communicate with the financial aid office while on the go, 24/7, from their laptops, PDAs or cell phones. They can check application status, view and accept awards, select a lender--even electronically sign and return documents. And, Regent's multilingual design supports the needs of an increasingly international population to work in their language of choice.
"Regent Enterprise will give BCCC the ability to automate and manage every aspect of the financial aid life cycle--providing critical information to help them reach their strategic goals," said Michael Ratti, Regent's CEO. "Additionally, the financial aid office will save time and resources, allowing the college to focus on the needs of its diverse student population."
