Each of our products are specifically designed to help institutions solve these and other unique pain points.
We start with the delivered communication and student facing functionality in the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions platform and extend it, enhancing the user experience while offering significantly more capabilities. Using our solutions, institutions greatly improve student engagement, communication response rates and back office efficiencies. No other PeopleSoft Campus Solutions partner offers such a comprehensive suite of products.
How students learn and communicate today is much different than even a decade ago. We understand much of a student’s life is spent on-the-go on a mobile device. What better way to engage them than on the technology they’re already using?
HighPoint Mobile is more than just an app, it’s a fully interactive experience. Students have their entire academic journey with every possible resource at their fingertips. When students participate in their own success, and stay engaged with the planning and direction of their future, something amazing happens. Students persevere. More graduate on time. And it can happen from a smartphone, tablet or any networked device.
HighPoint Mobile provides a secure, fast and easy way to navigate PeopleSoft Campus Solutions’ main student, faculty and advisor features. It can be used as a stand-alone product or in conjunction with most of our other products. You can either use our web version or download from the app store. Then the fun begins – and we mean fun. Our apps are fun to use and even easier to navigate thanks to our beautiful user interface.
What can the student do on HighPoint Mobile? Virtually everything to manage classes, financial aid, administrative tasks, career path and communications.
What can the institution do with HighPoint Mobile? Remarkably more than with PeopleSoft Campus Solutions alone. Administrative tasks are simplified and workloads decrease. Nudge students and send highly effective push notifications to keep them on path. Power to the people.
The typical student isn’t typical anymore. The average age for a student is 25 and older and more than a quarter of them are raising children. It is frustrating and stressful for a student to need a class and not get it because they’ve wasted so much time searching for availability and financial aid eligibility. Perhaps even worse is to have taken a class only to realize they paid for it, didn’t need it and it didn’t count towards their degree requirements. Our solutions give them all the information they need to efficiently and accurately plan their schedules so they take only the classes they need, when they need them.
Through HighPoint Mobile, students can use their device to build their own schedule and make changes based on real time information. In an instant, they can see whether a class is available, if it satisfies degree and prerequisite requirements, and how it could fit into their schedule. No waiting for the institution to send course and class data to external systems. No appointment with an advisor or waiting necessary. We give students the power to build.
How do you know where to go if you don’t have a path to get there? HighPoint Roadmap gives students and faculty the capability to simplify complex processes and visually depict financial aid steps, or any other business process. After all, any journey is a process of getting from A to B to C. Why not map it out so every step can be pictured and put into context of every other step?
HighPoint Roadmap is a tracking mechanism students can use to see where they are in their journey and what next steps they need to take to reach their goals. When they can monitor their progress, they are more motivated to keep going. They are empowered with information. They take control of their own success.
We think students should be able to navigate their path from anywhere, anytime. That’s why we designed HighPoint Roadmap to work seamlessly with HighPoint Mobile. Everything students and faculty need to find their way.
Back office processes can be massive headaches for institutions to manage. We take the processes of managing PeopleSoft checklists, communications, service indicators and user edit messages, and automate them. Our simple to use, easy to configure solution streamlines the typically complex setups that drain resources.
HighPoint Automation Engine is so efficient, institutions find about 40 percent of the PeopleSoft checklist items are not only checked off, but completed by the students themselves without ever stepping into an office. Students own their own pathway and career trajectory.
And those administrators? They have a better tool to manage processes without having to ask IT for reports and extra coding. Nearly half of their workload has been off-loaded. Now, IT has more time to work on more strategic projects. With the efficiencies and functionality built into the system, institutions can reach out to more students.
The Department of Education sets forth regulations on how financial aid must be administered. Where there are regulations, there is potential for non-compliance. Non-compliance can mean risk for an institution’s reputation and bottom line. We reduce both of those risks and give institutions the peace of mind that they’re following guidelines, crossing their T’s and dotting their I’s.
HighPoint Course Auditor automatically verifies which classes qualify for financial aid or partial credit and communicates that information directly with students when they enroll. Instead of a student completing enrollment and days later discovering the class does not qualify, the class is automatically flagged in PeopleSoft and an alert is sent to the student after they add the class to their schedule. Not only does this help guide students to take only the classes that qualify for their financial aid, it ensures students (and the institution) aren’t surprised.
Modern technology has completely changed how people communicate. Today’s student is less likely to read a lengthy email or listen to a voicemail. What is more apt to get their attention? Nudges and push notifications.
HighPoint Message Center provides a rapid, FERPA-compliant platform to communicate with students. Instead of sending an email and hoping they’ll open it, students receive a brief email, nudge and/or push notification on their mobile device directing them to their secure message center.
The HighPoint Message Center houses all communications from the institution and enables the student to engage in conversations with faculty and staff.
If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. Our solution makes it easy for institutions to track open penetration and open rates to gauge the success of the messaging strategy and delivery channel. This helps institutions continually improve their messaging protocol to ensure all students are informed and empowered. Institutions who use Message Center find 87 percent of their messages are read by their enrolled students. Now that’s communication at its best.
Most students appreciate a little direction when they enroll in school. Most institutions want to see their students succeed and graduate on time. HighPoint Degree Planner solves both issues by giving students a clear pathway to on-time graduation.
Once students specify their area of study and ideal course load per term, Degree Planner automatically generates a plan of suggested courses and the order they should be completed to ensure graduation goals are met. The system considers the student’s specific degree requirements, completed courses, prerequisites and personal schedules. It also enables students to test scenarios to see how changes to their schedules or majors impact graduation goals. No other solution provides such an intuitive and interactive experience that highlights a pathway to success.
