How can colleges and universities — and particularly their admissions offices — achieve the institutional progress their stakeholders expect when the options of increasing budget and adding staff aren’t on the table? 

During this session, graduate leaders will share how joining a Centralized Application Service (CAS™) streamlined their admissions processes, allowing them to focus their limited resources on meeting their strategic goals.


– Explore how a CAS minimized the manual administrative tasks associated with application processing.
– Discuss how joining a graduate education community increased program visibility.
– Offer insight into their implementation experience, highlighting the minimal effort investment required to get a CAS up and running.
