LINCOLN, Neb., June 24, 2019 — FACTS, a leading provider of service and technology solutions for private K-12 schools, today announced the launch of FACTS Application & Enrollment. The new solution is designed to streamline the admissions process for private K-12 schools and families by offering online application and re-enrollment packets, a responsive web interface, and the ability to accept credit card payments for application fees and registration.
FACTS Application & Enrollment combines two FACTS products – Online Application (OA) and Online Enrollment (OE) — into one highly efficient, standalone solution. Schools currently using OA and OE will begin to see the product referred to as FACTS Application & Enrollment or FACTS A&E.
“We want to make the admissions experience easier for our schools and families,” said DeeAnn Wenger, president of FACTS. “Schools are able to use Application & Enrollment regardless of whether they currently use other FACTS solutions.”
With FACTS Application & Enrollment, schools can create applications and collect enrollment fees all online, enabling admissions offices to reduce or eliminate paper usage – a trend that’s becoming increasingly more common for schools across the country.
In addition, the product simplifies re-enrollment for schools with returning families by taking a typically laborious, paperwork-laden process entirely online. FACTS Application & Enrollment allows schools to import and export information through their existing Student Information System (SIS) – even if they aren’t currently using FACTS SIS.
Schools can reconcile their application and re-enrollment fees in the FACTS system as well. If schools are using FACTS Tuition Management, they’re given an opportunity to experience parts of FACTS Premier Billing without being required to purchase FACTS SIS.
“Enrollment season is one of the busiest and most important times of year for schools,” said Jeremy Penner, FACTS director of product development. “With FACTS Application & Enrollment, schools can accomplish more with one tool. Manage applications from start to finish and create a faster, more convenient enrollment process for parents — it’s all possible, all at once.”
