Del Mar College Cuts Transcript Evaluation Time to Within 48 Hours

Transcript evaluation at Del Mar College once took several weeks to complete. Financial constraints at the Corpus Christi, TX, community college had led to a reorganization of its administrative structure, delaying the process and inhibiting the school's ability to matriculate, retain and graduate its 10,000-plus students.

"With more than 15,000 courses to evaluate every year, we needed to streamline the process," said Gil Becerra, dean of student outreach and enrollment services at Del Mar, in a press release.

Del Mar deployed OnBase by Hyland, an enterprise content management product designed to help organizations manage documents and data to streamline business operations. Using OnBase, transcripts are now evaluated in less than 48 hours, enabling the school to inform students which courses will transfer before they register for classes.

"With faster evaluation, [Del Mar] can deliver transfer decisions before students enroll, which positively impacts students as they know exactly what classes will transfer and what they will need to take to graduate," said Laurel Stiller, higher education manager at Hyland, in a statement. "This helps increase enrollment, eliminate repeated coursework and save critical time and money for students."
