Reinvent how students experience their scheduling and registration
Simplify and streamline the registration process for students by empowering them to create a visual calendar based on the courses they need to graduate and preferred times, locations and more. Students can easily register for more credit hours to reduce time to graduation, supporting student retention and success efforts. Institutions get insight like never before into supply and demand.
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.
Plan a Smarter Schedule
Support planning and faculty 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
What if your advising appointments weren’t a hectic scramble to match pathways requirements with schedule options? Advising appointments after implementing REGISTER Student Scheduling by VSB can focus more on essential questions about a student’s potential career paths, financial aid and more, further contributing to student success and retention.
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.
