Tyler Junior College (TJC) has licensed a comprehensive suite of
solutions from Ellucian to help deliver more personalized and
comprehensive support for students during a period of record enrollment.
The expanded services and new analytical capabilities will be delivered
without a significant increase in staff hours and are expected to help
increase the number of students who will complete a degree.
TJC is one of the larger community colleges in Texas, with an
enrollment of more than 12,000 credit students each year and 20,000
annual continuing education enrollments. “We are adjusting to the
complexities associated with record enrollment growth over the past five
years. These new solutions will help us maximize our existing staff
resources and technology investments while expanding our services and
strengthening our outreach to students,” said Larry Mendez, chief
information officer at the college.
Specifically, the solutions will provide the college with:
- Targeted communications by student cohort for more effective engagement
- Early alert functionality to help students overcome potential obstacles early on
- Web-based academic advising, degree audit, and transfer articulation
tools to help students find a more direct path to graduation
- More personalized recruiting campaigns for improved enrollment
- Metrics to measure the success of student retention efforts and track the college’s progress
- Tools to address recent state legislation that requires all
students to submit detailed degree plans that demonstrate how they
intend to achieve their degrees
“These tools will help the college address new and emerging
legislation in the areas of student retention and performance, online
degree planning, and making it easier for transfer students to enroll at
the institution,” said Bruce Bleiman, senior vice president, customer
relationships, Ellucian. “Tyler Junior College is taking a smart
approach of leveraging technology to meet these emerging requirements
and maximizing the efforts of its staff.”
