Weber State University Simplifies Financial Aid to Support its Dream Weber College Accessibility Program

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WSU Selects CampusLogic to Modernize Financial Aid and Improve the Student Experience

PHOENIX, November 17, 2015 – CampusLogic, creator of the first and only financial aid self-service platform, has partnered with Weber State University (WSU) to provide modern, mobile, paper-free financial aid for both staff and students. CampusLogic’s cloud-based platform, will optimize institutional efficiencies, increase enrollment, and improve the student experience by making financial aid faster and easier.

Weber State University is a coeducational, publicly supported university offering professional, liberal arts and technical certificates, as well as associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees to more than 26,000 students. The university prides itself in its excellent teaching, extraordinary commitment to meeting the needs of students at every stage of life, and ongoing service to the community.

“One of the key reasons we chose to automate financial aid was to support our Dream Weber Program which provides free tuition to students whose annual household income is $40,000 or less. The easier we make the financial aid process, the faster we can confirm applicants for the Dream Weber Program and make their dream of attending Weber State University a reality,” said Jed Spencer, Financial Aid & Scholarships Director at Weber State University.

The CampusLogic solution will provide a self-service financial aid experience for students with online task management, secure document upload from any device, built-in e-signature, and automated reminders. Financial aid staff will also benefit from workflow-driven file review, pre-indexed document retrieval, and automated student communications.

“With the typical paper-based approach to financial aid, it’s easy for students to make mistakes and re-submit paperwork multiple times, which lengthens the entire cycle,” said Spencer. “Now, with CampusLogic, student’s financial aid experience will be personalized and provide automatic form validation so documents are correct the first time. We expect to see higher financial aid completion rates, faster processing, and better student satisfaction.”

CampusLogic CEO Gregg Scoresby added, “Weber State University continues to lead and innovate, especially with their Dream Weber Program which makes higher education accessible to students from socioeconomic backgrounds that wouldn’t typically pursue college because of a lack of financial resources. We are honored to partner with such a forward-thinking university. Together, we have an opportunity to make a direct and positive impact on the community.”
