Ellucian, the leading global provider for higher education software and services, announced today that beta partner Central Oregon Community College (COCC) is among the first to prepare staff on Ellucian XE for Banner® Student Administration’s new features that help faculty and administrators provide improved application, registration, and financial aid services for students.

COCC, the oldest community college in the state of Oregon, is known for its forward-thinking approach to higher education. As COCC has seen an increase in student expectations, leadership has made investments in its core technology to exceed them.

With Banner® Student Administration, COCC’s IT department is looking to make the daily tasks of registrars and academic faculty simpler and more efficient. The updated system will provide their registrars and other administrative staff with a user-friendly interface to quickly access information and new tools for analyzing student information.

COCC’s focus on technology extends beyond its IT department. The institution is advancing the role of the community college by preparing students for high-wage, high-skilled jobs in the areas of health technology and advanced technology manufacturing.

“Our commitment to student success means that we focus on completion and preparing our students for employment and enriching our local communities,” said Shirley Metcaff, president of Central Oregon Community College. “We rely on Ellucian’s Banner® Student Administration to improve the lives of the students we serve.”

“We’ve been thoroughly impressed with the dramatic improvements to Banner® Student Administration,” said Ed Sea, director of information technology at Central Oregon Community College. “Having an updated user interface combined with rich functionality enables us to keep moving forward while easily staying up to date.”

“We’ve heavily invested in Banner modernization, and it’s great to see those investments paying off at COCC,” said Jeff Ray, president and CEO at Ellucian. “Banner Student Administration has the look, feel and functionality that our customers expect. It’s appealing to users, looks great on mobile, and puts critical information at the fingertips of decision makers across the campus. Most importantly, it helps colleges and universities maximize their IT resources at a time when technology’s impact on student and institutional success is as significant as ever.”
