Southern New Hampshire University Selects Regent Education’s Financial Aid Management Solution, Regent 8
Manchester, NH June 30th, 2014 – Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) has selected Regent Education’s financial aid management system—Regent 8—to support financial aid processes for all their students and programs including their industry-leading online programs and their new and cutting edge Competency Based Education program known as College for America (CFA). Regent 8 is the only financial aid management solution to offer complete support for all enrollment models including standard term, non-term, borrower-based and Competency Based Education.
“The growth we have experienced at SNHU coupled with our innovative learning models made finding a robust and flexible financial aid management solution critical to our future and our ability to continue to be a leader in efficiency and service,” said Paul LeBlanc, President of SNHU. “With Regent 8 we will have the ability to support all of our enrollment models, while also controlling costs so that we can continue to reduce one of the major barriers to a college level education-rising tuitions costs.”
“We are thrilled to be working with one of the most innovative schools in the country and look forward to a long and successful partnership,” said Randy Jones, CEO of Regent Education. “We designed Regent 8 to bring efficiency to even the most challenging processes, and are excited to partner with SNHU to help continue to support its leadership position in offering both traditional and non-traditional enrollment models at the lowest possible cost.”
Regent 8 is changing the ways institutions process financial aid, giving them revolutionary and intuitive tools to automate and manage every aspect of the financial aid life cycle—even for institutions with non-term, BBAY, and standard term models. Institutions have been hindered in their ability to offer non-term enrollment models due to limitations with their financial aid management systems. With Regent 8, schools now have an option that will allow them to offer the enrollment models that meet the needs of their institution and the students they serve.
“Financial aid is one of the most complex aspects of operation in any college or university, but at SNHU we take complexity to an entirely new level with our many enrollment model offerings,” said Stacy Sweeney, Chief Administrative Officer. “We are highly focused on efficiency, compliance and service and needed a system that is designed to support complex models with a high degree of automation.”
“In the current climate it is more important than ever that institutions are looking at ways to be competitive by meeting changing student needs, while also focusing on compliance and driving down costs,” said Jones. “Many institutions are hindered by the limitations of their financial aid management system and are unable to offer non-traditional enrollment models. With Regent 8 we are helping institutions adapt to the changing landscape in higher education, while also reducing back office processing needs by as much as 60 percent.”
