Ellucian, Montclair State University Partner to Revitalize Student Information Systems

Ellucian, the leading software and services provider for higher education, announced today it is partnering with Montclair State University in Montclair, New Jersey to revitalize its student information system to better serve its student body and faculty. Responding to rapidly growing student expectations, Montclair State is undertaking a campus-wide initiative that will be built on Banner® by Ellucian to drive integral programs such as student enrollment and student financial services.

This initiative was started in 2012 to rejuvenate the student experience while enhancing productivity and efficiency for the university’s systems and services. Banner® will enable Montclair State to establish a more personal relationship with its students by providing them with 24/7 access to critical services – regardless of the device they use.

“We are honored to be selected as Montclair State’s partner in this important initiative,” said John Speer, president and chief executive officer at Ellucian. “We recognize meeting student expectations in an ‘always connected’ world is the key dynamic that defines the way institutions are applying technology. Our sole focus at Ellucian is to provide solutions for higher education in this exciting climate of change. We look forward to working side-by-side with Montclair State to achieve the University’s goals.”

“Ellucian’s solution was chosen to help us realize the University’s strategic vision of connecting to tomorrow,” said Edward Chapel, Montclair State’s vice president for information technology. “Our focus is on excellence in all that we do to serve our students, including applying advances in technology in ways that ensure that our students’ experience is second to none. Mobility, real-time transactions, integration with social media and cloud-based services, as well as integration with our core learning management system all help us achieve this goal.”

Over the last 30 years, Ellucian and Montclair State have collaborated on several projects. Under the latest agreement, Montclair State will take advantage of several Banner programs aimed at improving student success with solutions that personalize the student experience.

Banner® Student will offer Montclair State students a tailored solution to help apply for admission, enroll in classes and retrieve financial data on their own schedule. In addition, Ellucian Luminis® Platform will provide Montclair State students access to course catalogs and class registration forms, and allow them to monitor account balances. Students will also have access to Ellucian Degree Works™, an online planning tool that manages and tracks academic progress. Montclair State will also deploy Ellucian Mobile, which will give students the flexibility to monitor progress and stay connected on any device.

Montclair State will implement Ellucian Recruiter, a student recruitment and enrollment management software solution, designed to find best-fit students, meet enrollment goals and increase retention and graduation rates.

Banner® Financial Aid will also be used to help students navigate complicated financial aid application processes while easing the processing burden for administrators at the university.
