2015 AACRAO
Technology & Transfer Conference


Join Us in Austin
A growing emphasis on student success and outcomes has many implications, especially as institutions attempt to recruit and retain diverse, knowledgeable, and mobile populations. For many institutions, creating a transfer-friendly environment is a key strategy as students continue to transfer at higher rates. In addition, the use of technology is integral to enrollment strategy, and the activities of the registrar, admissions, orientation, and retention staff are often the critical difference between institutional success and failure.  

With this in mind, we invite you to join the ongoing conversation at AACRAO’s Technology and Transfer Conference in Austin. The sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities at the meeting will help you develop and refine your own programs, policies, and initiatives and inspire others on your campus to make a real difference in the success of your students. 

Attend Two Meetings for the Price of One.
Both Technology and Transfer offer their own independent programming; however, they will share plenary speakers, refreshment breaks, social events, and the exhibit hall. As a registered attendee, you will have the option of attending sessions of interest at either meeting. Last year, many attendees took advantage of the opportunity, and many brought institutional teams to “divide and conquer” the sessions.

Who attends?
AACRAO’s Technology and Transfer Conference brings together professionals from admissions, retention, enrollment management, transfer center, financial aid, and registrar offices to discuss and debate current issues. This is your opportunity to network with more than 300 of your peers—all engaged in the many facets of student services technology and student transfer issues. In addition, our exhibitors will be available to showcase their products and services and answer your questions. 

Program
The AACRAO Technology program provides a forum for admissions and student records professionals to focus on the pragmatic aspects of technology, the issues surrounding its use, and/or how it can be used in an innovative manner. Connect with a community of peers to delve into these issues, vet new ideas, and to hear/provide relevant feedback and guidance. 

AACRAO’s Transfer program has historically been at the forefront of providing current information about transfer students, transfer policies, and current practices being employed to support the success of this student population. 

Sessions, Workshops, and More...
NEW! This year we are excited to introduce a series of discussions on the extended transcript. Learn about the project, provide feedback, and help develop the new framework.  Also, plan to attend either the Registrar 101/FERPA or Reverse Transfer pre-conference workshops. These workshops will help kick-start your meeting!  With more than 60 sessions and plenary presentations given by renowned higher education practitioners, you will have access to some of the most innovative work in our fields.
