Regent Education – Changing the Financial Aid Paradigm
Regent Education is the leading provider of SaaS solutions to automate financial aid verification, packaging, and disbursement for not only standard academic year, but also nonstandard term and non-term enrollment models like borrower-based academic year (BBAY) and competency-based education (CBE).
OVER 12 YEARS IN FINANCIAL AID MANAGEMENT
Regent Education traces its beginnings back to 2005, when a team of entrepreneurs bought the rights to and transformed Computing Options’ SIS solution into a best of breed financial aid management system. Shortly thereafter, they formed the senior team, and launched the company.
Today, the eighth version of Regent’s financial aid management system processes aid for more than one million students every year – awarding over $1.7B in financial aid annually – helping schools and students alike better navigate the challenging admissions and financial aid processes.
