How Valdosta State University Transformed Their Registration Process, From a CIO’s Perspective

Students at Valdosta State University had problems developing schedules that worked for their personal time constraints and degree plans so they could graduate on time. Watch the video and read the case study to find out how they use REGISTER, DegreeWorks and Banner to offer a better experience for students and increase institutional efficiency.

“We would hear complaints that students couldn’t get into courses they wanted to when they wanted. From an administration perspective we were almost in the blind when it came to really being able to understand our students, which was very inefficient.”

How Valdosta State University Transformed Their Registration Process

At Valdosta State University (VSU), students had problems developing schedules that worked for their personal time constraints and degree plans to graduate on time. DegreeWorks advised students on the courses needed semester-by-semester, and students used Ellucian Banner to find times for each course, which was time-consuming.

VSU implemented DIGARC’s REGISTER student scheduling solution in 2018 to do what they hadn’t been able to before—offer a modern scheduling experience that helps students satisfy graduation requirements and their complicated personal schedules.

REGISTER integrates with Ellucian Banner and DegreeWorks so students can move beyond semester-by-semester course level recommendations to finding section level schedules that fit their academic and personal needs, enabling on-time graduation.

Read the case study to learn how VSU gains visibility across their 30 departments and supports student success with a better scheduling and registration process.
