Brandman University extends its partnership with Regent Education to further enrich its student financial aid experience

April 20, 2021 | By


Brandman University, an institution known for its innovative programs and student support services for adult learners, has extended its partnership with Regent Education to further enrich its student financial aid experience and student financial aid planning. The University recently deployed Regent Plan, which provides informed planning, smart borrowing, and improved support to help students borrow responsibly and minimize debt while completing degree programs. It also has selected Regent Award for Salesforce the only higher ed financial aid app on Salesforce AppExchange to enable its enrollment and student-success teams to access key financial aid insights to aid in student recruiting and advising, respectively.

Brandman University’s robust online and on-campus programs are designed to support non-traditional students who need to pursue their studies on their own schedules. It is in support of these non-traditional enrollment programs that Brandman originally partnered with Regent, the only independent provider of financial aid automation solutions for institutions offering non-traditional enrollment models. Thanks to Regent’s automation of Brandman’s semester-based and non-term CBE programs, instead of focusing on unnecessary workarounds, financial aid staff members are now free to deliver the personalized support that a community of students from diverse backgrounds with diverse needs requires.

With the additions of Regent Plan and Regent Award for Salesforce, Brandman will further enrich its support services and, ultimately, its student experience.

“At Brandman, we have focused on providing students assistance at each stage of their academic careers.  This includes Enrollment and One-Stop advising to support students’ financial aid journeys,” indicated Gary Brahm, Chancellor of Brandman University. “Regent’s automated planning tools and integration with our enrollment- and student-advising Salesforce tools provide a valuable extension of financial aid planning and visibility to ensure our students successfully progress through their programs.”

“Regent’s financial aid automation across any enrollment model should extend to the student and counselor. By providing a range of tools, including dynamic borrowing comparisons and insightful CRM integration with Salesforce, the Regent Suite can enhance markedly the range of student financial aid support our clients can provide,” said Jim Hermens, Chief Executive Officer at Regent Education.

In October, Brandman rolled out Regent Award for Salesforce, providing key financial aid indicators into the CRM, and deployed Regent Plan in February across the entire student, One-Stop, and Enrollment-Advisor populations.
