Bridging the Gap: From Credentials to Decisions

LIVE FREE Webinar Date: Wednesday, July 29, 2015 2:00-3:00pm ET


Transcripts connect secondary education with post-secondary institutions, delivering a student’s story through innovative technology. Technology has empowered students to apply to more schools than ever before, which means more credentials for Admissions staff to process. What is the simplest way to connect these credentials to other application data residing in your CRM, SIS, or other database?   Learn how to receive credentials, apply technology and quickly match them to your systems, allowing staff to spend less time processing and more time reviewing.  And then let’s evaluate the impact that faster transcript processing can have on student advising, retention and success.
