FREDERICK, Md., Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Bellevue University has selected Regent Education to accelerate financial aid processing for all of its students. Bellevue is a private, non-profit, open-access institution focused on providing flexible, accredited degree programs to meet today’s students’ needs. However, today’s students are choosing nontraditional and flexible educational paths—balancing lives, families, and careers while earning their degrees. Unfortunately, traditional education models (and their associated financial aid and student support) are not aligned with these flexible paths. Regent Award and Regent Review will enable Bellevue’s financial aid team to manage the complexities of its non-traditional enrollment models and process financial aid faster by automating core processing functions, including packaging, verification, and R2T4. As a result, Bellevue University will achieve greater staff efficiency, grow enrollments with greater scale, and provide enhanced student service by delivering awards faster, leveraging Regent’s industry-leading student facing tools, and being freed up to provide additional support to Bellevue’s diverse student community.
“Bellevue University is pleased to be partnering with Regent Education to provide a financial aid environment that aligns with our student-centric, flexible degree programs. Our ability to automate our financial aid processes will create operational efficiencies, enabling students to receive their financial aid information faster and freeing up staff to spend more time counseling students,” said Matthew Davis, Bellevue University Executive Vice President. “We’re especially pleased to be implementing purpose-built solutions that will provide exceptional service to the students associated with our corporate partnerships.”
“Regent’s solutions are uniquely tailored to institutions like Bellevue University that are using nonstandard term and/or non-term enrollment models. By automating key components, we can enable financial aid processing that is more efficient, has fewer errors, and offers better service to students,” said Jim Hermens, CEO of Regent Education.
