Regent Education extends its deployment with Brigham Young University-Idaho to support student financial aid planning, support, and delivery

FREDERICK, Md., — Regent Education is enhancing student financial aid planning, support, and delivery to better serve university students through its recent deployment of Regent Plan.

Regent Plan, Regent’s newest product within its financial aid automation suite, as well as the Regent Student Experience, Regent’s student-facing portal, provides students with:

  • an improved, responsively designed student financial aid portal to enhance student self-service capabilities;
  • Advisor Assist, which allows financial aid counselors to view a students’ portal interfaces for real-time, interactive guidance and question resolution; and
  • the implementation of Smart Borrowing and My Plan functionality, to provide students with increased control and visibility into borrowing options, insight into full program costs, future awarding, and projected indebtedness to help students borrow responsibly and minimize debt.

In early February, Regent Education extended its financial aid software deployment with Brigham Young University-Idaho to add the new capabilities of Regent Plan for the university’s students.

“Our student solutions deliver dynamic, informed planning and forecasting along with increased self-service and stronger counselor support,” said Jim Hermens, Chief Executive Officer at Regent Education. “Our intent is to have an immediate impact on student borrowing decisions that result in lower loan obligations as well as to dramatically improve the financial aid process and visibility for students and counselors.”
