Reinvent student scheduling and registration with a college class planner
Use a university and college class planner to deliver smarter schedules by monitoring student search and enrollment activities including course supply and anticipated demand, common course conflicts, student persistence and enrollment heat maps. Simplify the registration process for students and reduce time to graduation by empowering them to create a visual calendar based on the courses they need to graduate combined with their personal preferences.
Smarter Planning with Analytics
Support planning and facility resource allocation by monitoring student search and enrollment activities including course supply and anticipated demand, common course conflicts, student persistence and enrollment heat maps. In combination with DIGARC’s SECTION schedule planning tool you can gain visibility into the scheduling process from request to registration, and agility to shift sections based on student demand.
Improve Advising Efforts
Through an intuitive interface, advisors gain access to special guidance tools enabling them making schedule recommendations or modifications. REGISTER allows advisors to focus on what they do best – student success and retention. Advisors spend less time trying to build class schedules around a students life and more time working with students on long-term goals, grades, career options, financial aid and more.
Support Student Retention and Success
Students at four-year colleges who take 15 credits their first semester are 11% more likely to earn a degree than those who take 12 credits, according to The Community College Research Center. With the ability to easily and quickly register for the courses they need in an average of 14 minutes instead of 4 hours, institutions using REGISTER Student Scheduling by VSB contributed to increased student persistence by 1.41 credit hours, and faster graduation by one semester. By improving persistence even 1 percent, schools can increase kept tuition and fees by millions annually.
Hear from Karen McCredie, former registrar of Capilano University, about how they gained visibility over course offerings and student demand while helping students increase credit hours taken to reduce time to graduation.
