FREDERICK, Md., May 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Herzing University has partnered with Regent Education to transform its financial aid processes. Serving a large population of adult learners and career-focused students through a variety of flexible programs, Herzing required a solution that could accommodate rolling enrollments while simultaneously improving the overall student experience. After an exhaustive search, the University found what it needed in Regent.
Herzing has selected Regent 8 to automate a significant portion of the University's financial aid lifecycle, and Regent Review to handle paperless verification and ISIR processing. Regent 8 addresses a student services gap for Herzing by providing a financial aid management system which can handle, automate and streamline financial aid processing for Borrower Based Academic Year (BBAY) programs.
"Students turn to Herzing because of the personal attention we provide, so we are always looking for ways to free up our staff to focus on the student's needs and not just the paperwork and processing," says Kevin McShane, Vice President of Educational Funding and Compliance at Herzing. "With Regent 8 and Regent Review in place, the University will be in a position to provide greater student service." Herzing also counts streamlined operations, fewer human errors, and increased compliance among the anticipated benefits of the Regent solutions as it rolls out its two-phased implementation plan.
"Regent is proud to work with an institution that is nationally recognized for being a 'military-friendly school,'" says Jim Hermens, Chief Executive Officer for Regent Education, and a military veteran himself. "We look forward to clearing Herzing's financial aid processing hurdles so that they can focus on their core mission of helping all students achieve their educational goals."
