CULVER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--XAP Corporation has been selected by the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) to develop a new Online Admissions Application System that will simplify and streamline the enrollment process for prospective students who apply to any of the state’s 23 community colleges, with a goal to ultimately increase the enrollment rates across all their campuses.
The VCCS sought proposals for a new online application system as a means to achieve the objectives of its Complete 2021 initiative – a strategic plan to triple the number of postsecondary credentials that Virginia’s students earn by the year 2021. The plan anticipates projected demands for a more skilled and educated workforce in the state over the next 10 years, and many of the jobs will require an associate’s degree, certification or licensure.
The new system will play an integral role in supporting components of Complete 2021, and will help to address immediate challenges such as raising application completion rates, improving applicant satisfaction, improving the identity verification process to prevent fraudulent applications, and collecting useful information from applicants to help colleges put them onto suitable career pathways.
“Virginia’s Community Colleges have both a public mission and strategic plan that calls for us to serve more people,” said Glenn DuBois, chancellor of Virginia’s Community Colleges. “We are eager to begin this collaboration and will ultimately judge its success on how much it helps us attract more applicants, and enroll more of those individuals.”
“Complete 2021 is an important endeavor that will significantly impact the state’s future workforce for generations,” said Eddie Monnier, Chief Executive Officer of XAP Corporation. “We’re very excited that the VCCS recognizes our experience and success with building powerful, tailored online application solutions and chose us to help them meet their strategic objectives.”
