Anthology’s Student Verification software has helped Howard College navigate the crucial and sometimes tenuous world of financial aid verification.
Howard College – a community college serving a diverse student body in the West Texas areas of Big Spring, Texas with campuses in San Angelo, Lamesa and Southwest College for the Deaf – needed a way to streamline, automate and centrally manage its student financial aid verification process.
The institution’s financial aid department’s goal was to implement software that could be accessed online, using real-time data to serve all students across all four of its campus locations. It also sought to decrease verification errors and time spent verifying files. Howard College’s financial aid department was short staffed, but they knew the right software could help them increase efficiently to be able to process the verification files in a timely manner.
