Unit4 Student Management –
a new-generation student information system
for the next generation of institutions; available today

Unit4 Student Management enables your institution to automate the entire student lifecycle – from recruitment to alumni. It harnesses the latest technology to deliver a new generation software experience for your people. Your students can stay connected, access necessary resources and use your systems with the ease they expect from today’s technology. Your staff can focus on what really matters – equipping your students for a better future – instead of tedious and distracting admin tasks.

Why?

Institutions are being held back by legacy student information systems (SISs), which are outdated, brittle and overly complex.

With aging underlying architecture that doesn’t support agility, legacy systems have also often become highly customized and inefficient. As a result, they’re expensive to maintain and upgrade, and they struggle to support new program delivery and business models – a situation that today’s institution simply can’t afford.

How?

Unit4 Student Management offers you a new-generation SIS that is scalable, purpose-built for higher education institutions like yours and supports staff and students throughout every stage of the student lifecycle.

Its key capabilities support your day-to-day processes including:
Admissions | Academics | Financial Aid | Billing | Communications | Reporting | Analytics | System Management

What?

Our future-proofed solution is designed for a fast-changing world, where mobile-enabled tools, dashboards and intuitive interfaces are ubiquitous – and expected. As well as engaging with students and staff more effectively, it helps your institution modernize processes, maximize productivity and improve efficiency, while building in accountability and transparency.
The result? More space:
For students to learn and grow | For faculty and staff to support and inspire them.
