Connecting Technology Buckets in Student Affairs

By Eric Stoller
December 1, 2014

The Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) website lists "44 sets of functional area standards for higher education programs and services." That represents a multitude of departments and services that are present at most colleges and universities. It also means that there are scores of technologies at play within myriad functional areas.

Situated at the core of these technologies are databases that collect and disseminate endless amounts of data. Those datasets are housed in buckets or silos that rarely are bridged. New systems are brought online, older systems are patched up, and a digital patina starts to form. In a world where big data is de rigueur, how do we make sense of things? And perhaps more importantly, who do we look to for future-ready technology services that have the capacity to connect digital tendrils to our existing collection of services?

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Student Loans

By Mary Johnson
December 1, 2014

Student loans are a great resource to help cover the costs of obtaining a degree. After all, investing time and money into a college education can really pay off. Median earnings for someone with a bachelor's degree, for example, are 70 percent higher than someone with just a high school diploma, according to recent studies by the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics. But as with any investment, you have to be smart about student loans.

Avoiding the Bad and the Ugly

Do Your Research

The most important thing to remember before taking out a student loan is that it is a financial contract that has to be paid back -- with interest -- even if you don't finish your degree. So be sure to limit the total amount of loans you borrow to only what you really require to complete your program of study. Another crucial thing to keep in mind is that these funds are intended for essential costs such as tuition, fees and books, and not as a lifestyle subsidy. It's also a good idea to research what you might expect as a starting salary in the field you plan to major in to make sure you will be able to reasonably afford the monthly loan payments once they come due. (For salary information, check out data from the U.S. Department of Labor). For federal loans, payments will commence six months after you graduate or leave school, so be prepared.

Leading Companies Go Bowling to Support Student Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship, Workforce Readiness Programs

By Community Contributor Bernard Kavaler
November 30, 2014

With the camaraderie of bowling, some of Connecticut's top companies are taking the lead in supporting volunteer-delivered financial literacy, entrepreneurship and workforce readiness programs developed by Junior Achievement for students in local schools. Three events are taking place this fall, with more already on the spring calendar.

Providing children with positive role models who illustrate ways to build self-confidence, develop skills and find avenues of success in our economic system, is a hallmark of Junior Achievement. JA programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire students to dream big and reach their potential.

Testimonials

Before Higher One, our students only had one way to get their refunds, and that was by paper check. With Higher One processing refunds for us, it has allowed us to provide more options for our students without having to enter and store student banking information. We also no longer have to handle sorting, stuffing and mailing thousands of checks.Suzanne ClaggettUniversity of West Florida
Higher One’s experience with college students and their focus on serving colleges distinguishes Higher One from all other financial service providers. We really liked the fact that the community college customer base is expanding for Higher One.Carla Chance St. Louis Community College
