Portland State University Introduces a New Digital Student Experience with CampusLogic’s ScholarshipUniverse and VirtualAdvisor

PHOENIX, AZ, December 1, 2021 — CampusLogic, the category leader of Student Financial Success solutions, today announces a new partnership in the Pacific Northwest with Portland State University (PSU). PSU, recognized by U.S. News as Oregon’s Most Innovative Campus, will introduce two new solutions to enhance the student experience: ScholarshipUniverse and VirtualAdvisor, which are both part of the CampusLogic platform of enrollment and financial aid software. The implementation of these solutions at PSU will reduce financial friction —the number one barrier to enrollment and degree completion.  

“Creating a student-centric platform with this combination of CampusLogic products, gives PSU students the advantage of enhanced access to vetted, verified scholarship opportunities and an integrated multilingual virtual assistant to solve financial aid questions faster,” said Amanda Bierbrauer, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management & Student Finances at PSU. 

Portland State University is home to more than 18,000 undergraduate students, and 65 percent of that population receives financial aid to pursue their degrees. PSU has been recognized as Oregon’s Most Affordable Research University, and this new venture will continue to allow the university to reduce financial aid pain points for both students and staff.  

“Working with CampusLogic to bring these solutions to Portland State University will allow us to create a one-stop solution for students seeking scholarships on-demand assistance to move through the process seamlessly,” Bierbrauer goes on to say.

Portland State University will have access to robust student communication tools available through VirtualAdvisor—a data-driven virtual assistant that utilizes communication empowered by artificial intelligence to guide students to degree completion. Along with that, students at PSU will have an entirely new scholarship application and award process through ScholarshipUniverse—a personalized scholarship matching tool that eliminates search fatigue and increases fund utilization. 

”Financial aid offices and students alike are finding themselves too frustrated to effectively overcome obstacles in the aid pipeline,” said Allison Duquette, CRO of CampusLogic. “Pairing tools like ScholarshipUniverse and VirtualAdvisior gives staff time back to engage in high-touch efforts, supporting students in new, more comprehensive ways.”
