SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 22, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- National University is the second-largest private, non-profit university in California and the 12th largest in the United States. With more than 23,000 students it was imperative to find a financial aid management solution that would drive automation and support their complex packaging and repackaging needs. Regent 8 was selected based on its advanced packaging and automation capabilities, as well as its unique ability to support all enrollment models.

"With 28 regionally-dispersed campuses, a variety of programs, and a unique enrollment model, managing financial aid programs can be extremely challenging at National," said Valerie Ryan, Director of Financial Aid. "Other financial aid management products lacked the automation and flexibility we needed. We attended a Regent Education webinar to gain an understanding of functionality and features and were quickly able to see that the level of automation and flexibility with Regent 8 was exactly what we were looking for. Regent 8 will allow us to serve our students effectively, improve efficiently, and ensure compliance with federal regulations."

Key areas of focus for National included the automation of packaging and repackaging, return to Title IV, satisfactory academic progress, the disbursement process, and student communication. "We are very excited about the automation of processes and the associated reduction in back office tasks, and are equally excited about the increase in service to our students," said Randy Frisch, Vice Chancellor of Business and Administration.

"We designed Regent 8 to take automation to an entirely new level," said Shaun Poulton, CTO for Regent. "We have automated every aspect of the financial aid lifecycle, and have paired that with a state of the art user interface that dramatically improves the efficiency of our partner schools' financial aid offices. In addition to a significant reduction in time to provide students with financial aid awards, our customers are seeing their back office tasks reduced between 20 percent and 60 percent."

"In today's economic climate, it's more important than ever for universities to manage the financial aid process in an efficient, compliant and service centered manner," said Randy Jones, CEO of Regent Education. "We were very pleased to be working with National and look forward to a long and successful partnership."

Regent 8 was built by a team of world-class engineers and a team of financial aid experts with over 250 collective years of experience. Regent 8 is the only 100 percent Software as a Service (SaaS) based solution to provide complete support for non-term, nonstandard term and standard academic year schools.
