Algonquin College Selects Unit4 Student Management to Provide a Modernized Student Experience
Unit4, a leader in enterprise cloud applications for mid-market services organizations, today announced that Algonquin College has selected Unit4 Student Management to support its growth and commitment to quality education.
Algonquin College is one of Canada’s largest colleges with campuses in the capital city of Ottawa, and the Ottawa Valley communities of Perth and Pembroke. It is home to a diverse population of over 45,000 full and part-time students spread over 270 programs. Over 1,300 international students enrol there from more than 100 countries.
In early 2020, Algonquin launched AC Online, its first digital-only campus – and has the highest number of online enrolments of all Colleges and CÉGEPS in Canada. As a leader in the integration of technology into learning, Algonquin College was looking for a flexible student information system (SIS) that could meet its strategic and operational needs, providing the tools to enhance their students’ academic success, improve institutional and operational effectiveness, and optimize SIS-related processes.
Algonquin College selected Unit4 following a rigorous Request for Proposal (RFP) process that complied with the Broader Public Sector (BPS) Procurement Directive of Ontario.
By implementing Unit4 Student Management, Algonquin College will be the first college in Ontario to move to a cloud SIS, and will benefit from:
- Automation and control across the entire student lifecycle — from recruitment to alumni — including: Admissions, Academics, Financial Aid, Billing, Communications, Reporting & Analytics
- A modern and future-proofed solution
- End-to-end support for educators and students alike
- Greater personalization and digitization of services to students, academics, and professional service staff
“Algonquin College is a leader in personalized learning and Unit4 is the ideal partner to help us further enhance and customize the student experience,” said Claude Brulé, President and CEO, Algonquin College. “The company’s cutting-edge technology is going to transform how we do business. Together, we will build a new student information system that will have a positive impact on both employees and learners – and position Algonquin for a dynamic future.”
“It is vital, especially now, that colleges are given the support, tools and flexibility to ensure their success, but also provide the right learning experience that all students deserve,” said Mike Ettling, CEO of Unit4. “Algonquin’s educational mission is to transform hopes and dreams into skills and knowledge leading to lifelong success, and we look forward to partnering with them on this journey.”
