Kettering University

An enrollment system that saves staff and students time. 

Challenge

Integrate and streamline admissions and enrollment management processes with one comprehensive system

Results
  • Intuitive online application system 
  • Streamlined applicant record entry 
  • Seamless integration with the college’s ERP

Kettering University’s enrollment system integrates existing software and streamlines processes, preparing them for future growth. 

Kettering University and its online graduate school, Kettering University Online, offer immersive, interactive, career-based programs designed to help students succeed in STEM and business-related careers. In the face of steady growth, Kettering University Online needed to upgrade its enrollment system to streamline its application processing and integrate its various programs into a single, efficient system.

The university had several objectives in mind. It wanted to give prospects easy online access to its application, reduce the time spent processing those applications, and implement its new solution as quickly as possible. And it needed a solution that would work smoothly with its existing technologies and strategies.

“What we were thinking is, ‘If we continue to grow the way we have, the better off we are getting something with seamless integration,’” says Christine Wallace, vice president of the Kettering Global Campus.

Kettering ultimately chose Ellucian CRM Recruit as its enrollment solution for three key reasons: its modern functionality, configurability, and its native integration with the university’s existing ERP.

The new CRM “has taken a lot of stress out of our application process and admission process,” says Wallace. “We’ve been able to go down to about a quarter of the time it used to take to process applications.”
