Blue Cliff
The Institution

Blue Cliff College is a career school accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), offering certifications in various fields, including Medical Assisting, Cosmetology, Dental Assisting, and more across Louisiana. Since 1987, Blue Cliff College has been successfully serving and inspiring its students. Before VIAS, Blue Cliff College has been utilizing many software solutions to support everything from operations to student acquisition, enrollment, financial aid processing, tuition payments, and more.

The Problem

Blue Cliff College had too many costly tech solutions. Their existing SIS needed more integration between systems, resulting in fragmented data and inefficiencies, security risks, and confusion for faculty, administration, and students. Therefore, Blue Cliff College needed a student information system (SIS) to manage the entire student life cycle, replace multiple software types, integrate with third-party partners, and provide a comprehensive view of the institution's financial health.

The Solution

Blue Cliff College partnered with VIAS, consolidating all the software needed to run a for-profit college under one system. The five-step process involved conducting a needs assessment, understanding data collection across departments, connecting third-party integrations, verifying data integrity, and providing hands-on training.

The Result

By implementing VIAS Campus Management, Blue Cliff College saved over $830K annually by eliminating the cost of server storage, document storage, texting solutions, payment processing solutions, and more. The institution also eliminated over ten tech solutions, resulting in increased operational efficiencies, including a single login for accessing and inputting data, documents, and communication. Moreover, by leveraging VIAS's capabilities, Blue Cliff College could reallocate financial resources, work towards increasing student satisfaction and retention, and adjust tuition fees.
