The new student expects 24/7 access to information and a higher-level user experience in all of their digital interactions including with their educational institution.  In addition, the new traditional higher education student is shifting to become an adult learner over the age of 25, trying to balance work, school and family, and needing more flexible educational and support programs to fit their needs.

“Students find university digital services incredibly frustrating to use, with too many steps in the processes, and information that’s hard to find and hard to get answers about when needed,” said Ling Chai Maginn, President and CEO of Jenzabar. “Colleges and universities must adapt to the changing expectations of the new higher ed student. With Jenzabar One, campuses can easily transition to a cloud-based student-centered approach that brings a new level of agility to accommodate this wider variety of students in today’s higher education ecosystem and allow them to become more competitive.”

  • Integrated, flexible and unified student system to simplify the student experience. Jenzabar One has been re-designed around the needs of the new student to create an integrated, modern cloud-ready student system, incorporating data and processes from ERP, finance, human resources and its student information system (SIS) modules. Students can navigate with ease and access all of the information they need from their device.
    With Jenzabar One, higher education institutions have greater power and flexibility to choose which modules they need and integrate them easily. Campuses can simplify processes, streamline operations and modernize their infrastructure to enhance operational efficiencies and eliminate siloed bureaucracy. Administrators can get a real-time 360-degree view of the student to identify “at-risk” students early to increase retention and student success.
