PHOENIX, AZ, APRIL 21, 2020— CampusLogic, higher education’s leading student financial success platform, today announced that it has exceeded 100 institutional partnerships in California. With 500+ schools now leveraging the CampusLogic platform, California is the first to hit the 100+ mark and leads significantly in the number of schools that are currently committed to empowering student financial success in higher education.
Butte College in Oroville, CA, has implemented both CampusMetrics™ and StudentForms™, and Director of Financial Aid Tammera Shinar says students are now moving through the process of applying for aid and are receiving their much-needed financial aid faster than ever before. “Implementing CampusLogic was a game-changer for our students,” Shinar comments. “The feedback we hear from students is very positive. They really appreciate the online functionality that CampusLogic offers along with the great communication features that keep students informed about their financial aid.”
Regional Vice President for CampusLogic, Chris Jordan, is zeroed in on California institutions. “Currently, there are more than three million students who drop out of school for reasons related to finances every year in the U.S., and CampusLogic is on a mission to change that,” said Jordan. “There are more than 281 colleges and universities in California, and as the higher education student population continues to become more diverse—with more diverse needs—it is imperative that we equip schools to meet those students where they are with dynamic, personalized interactions that will empower student financial success.”
California State University San Marcos implemented StudentForms to modernize their financial aid office and deliver better customer service to their 17,000+ students. Julie Lindenmeier, Director of Financial Aid and Scholarships, comments, “Implementing CampusLogic freed up staff from opening mail, scanning, and indexing documents; and now we spend our time counseling students rather than getting paper cuts.”
At the University of California – Santa Barbara, the financial aid office has leveraged the power of StudentForms and ScholarshipUniverse™ to deliver personalized, mobile information to students and provide them with a one-stop-shop for scholarship opportunities. "CampusLogic has been a game-changer for the families we serve. Almost overnight, we were able to greatly enhance the level of service we provide,” said Mike Miller, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Enrollment.
The ability to turn on a dime and be a completely virtual financial aid office appeals to Jose Aguilar, Director of Financial Aid at UC Riverside (UCR). “StudentForms has been a godsend to UCR’s financial aid office,” said Aguilar. With StudentForms in place, we were able to have a smooth transition for working remotely during the COVID-19 interruption. Our staff was in a position to continue working on verification with minimal disruption.”
Elizabeth Hilton, Director of Student Financial Services at Riverside City College, summarized their experience by saying, “StudentForms from CampusLogic has changed the landscape of financial aid at our college.” She explained that moving from paper-driven processes to a virtual platform significantly decreased processing time while showing an increase of 16% in student files submitted. “We have been able to re-imagine our office from a process-centered philosophy to a student-centered and customer service driven mission.”
California is leading the way in empowering student financial success by getting rid of old, paper-driven processes and replacing them with innovative, personalized experiences. Joel Brown, Assistant Director of Financial Aid at California Baptist University, attests to the positive changes since implementing CampusLogic software. “CampusLogic took our manual verification process and streamlined it to be able to do 150+ verifications per week with only two employees processing our entire university,” said Brown. From mobile communication to maximized scholarship opportunities to clear and understandable pricing information, institutions are stepping up to ensure students have every opportunity to enroll in school and complete their higher education goals. And CampusLogic will be beside them every step of the way.
