ALBANY, NY, February 19, 2020—CampusLogic—higher education’s leading student financial success platform—announced today its partnership with New York’s Commission of Independent Colleges and Universities (CICU) to provide student-centric technology proven to streamline the entire student finance journey.
“Making the college dreams of all students achievable is at the heart of the mission of every private college in New York,” says CICU President Mary Beth Lebate. “We are in the business of helping our students prepare for a better tomorrow, and technology that removes barriers to higher education means a well-educated, creative, and flexible workforce for all of New York.”
CICU represents the interests of more than 100 institutions that serve 489,400 students state-wide. Through the partnership, all New York private, not-for-profit institutions will have access to exclusive member pricing for CampusLogic’s ScholarshipUniverse, CampusCommunicator®, StudentForms®, VirtualAdvisor®, SponsoredScholar®, ClearCost®, and CampusMetrics® products, enabling them to take advantage of digital award letters, simplified aid verification, a database of fully-vetted external scholarships, an integrated multilingual chatbot, and intuitive data visualizations and analytics.
With manual financial aid administration, managing such a high volume of information can backlog the financial aid office for days or even weeks—taking up critical time which could otherwise be used to provide support and advising to the students who need it most. Technology plays a critical role in enabling student financial success by freeing up time for financial aid advisors to have more meaningful interactions and making the entire process easy and accessible for students.
“We are thrilled to partner with CICU as they take great strides to enable student financial success by removing barriers to higher education. By facilitating access to the technology that will streamline and personalize the student financial journey, CICU is ensuring students are better-informed borrowers, have better access to scholarships, and are able to complete their higher education journey,” says Steven Morris, New York Regional Director for CampusLogic.
