Herzing University Launches Regent Award to Automate and Streamline Financial Aid Processing
FREDERICK, Md., April 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Herzing University and Regent Education are proud to announce the launch of the Regent Award financial aid management solution. Nine months after the full implementation of Regent Review, Herzing University now will automate a significant portion of its financial aid lifecycle through Regent Education’s flagship solution, Regent Award. This world-class institution now is better positioned to serve its student population through more effective and efficient financial aid verification, packaging and disbursement.
The Regent Award implementation is expected to help Herzing University improve efficiencies by automating financial aid packaging for multiple enrollment models and academic methodologies. Regent Award also will help the institution provide personalized attention and consultation to its students by reducing demand on the staff for paperwork and processing. Additionally, through Regent Award, Herzing will be able to award federal, state and institutional funding to qualified students in a more streamlined fashion.
“With the successful implementation of Regent Award, Herzing University is looking forward to expanding our personal-focused financial aid service to our students. Regent Award will not only result in award information being delivered more quickly to students, it also will allow our staff more time to assist and advise our students on their financial aid options,” said Kevin McShane, Vice President of Educational Funding & Compliance at Herzing University. “The collaboration with Regent Education has resulted in a dynamic product that suits the needs of both our student body and the university.”
“The collaboration between Herzing and Regent that resulted in the successful implementation of Regent Review and Regent Award will serve as a model for our future deliveries,” said Jim Hermens, CEO of Regent Education. “We look forward to our continued partnership with Herzing University in providing financial aid services to its unique and valued students.”
