, today announced that Rio Hondo College has purchased the Regent 4 Financial Aid Management System. The fully web-based software is designed to administer every aspect of an institution of higher education’s student financial aid process.
“ The Financial Aid Office is crucial to the success of our students. ”
“Recruitment and retention of students is critical to the success of our college. The Financial Aid Office is crucial to the success of our students,” said Maria-Araceli Romero, Director of Financial Aid at Rio Hondo College. “If we can’t give students accurate, real-time financial aid information, they may go to another college or worse, drop out altogether. The Regent 4 financial aid system is insurance that won’t happen.”
“We’ve heard of other financial aid management systems costing 6 times what the Regent 4 system is costing us, and they are not web-based, take years to deploy and have less functionality,” said John Bryant, Director of Information Technology. “Computing Options is getting their clients live in just a few months.”
The Regent 4 Financial Aid Management System is web-based, uses open-standards architecture and can be deployed as a stand-alone system or integrated with most ERP administrative systems. Regent 4 is platform independent, (Windows, Linux, HP-UX), works with Oracle or MS-SQL databases, and is easy to learn
