Go Beyond the Traditional College Student Onboarding Process

“Wisr ran our [incoming student] match through an algorithm, and the process that used to take a full work week happened while I drank my morning coffee.”

Historically, the college student onboarding process was a short event, typically lasting one to a few days early in the school year. Now, recent events, industry shifts, and even generational preferences mean that your institution must adapt to create the same memorable, successful experiences for incoming students virtually.

For student life teams, onboarding is an ongoing challenge. You need to bring multiple departments, teams, staff members, and students together. Strategically, the college student onboarding process serves to cement the relationship between enrolled students and your institution. So, how can student life teams effectively manage such a significant program online?

You’re not alone in this effort, however — our team is available to help you build, launch, enhance, and monitor the effectiveness of your virtual college student onboarding process.
