During the pandemic, online education has grown tremendously and so has competition for students. Universities and colleges with aggressive marketing strategies have been able to enroll potential students way before those that are less aggressive make contact. As such, the need for a seamless application process has never been so important. This is also because the online realm comes with its challenges and a significant percentage of those who start the process do not complete their college or course application process.
At Frontlearn Institute, we have made the application process pretty seamless as demonstrated under the below themes:
The top complaint among applicants as well as their guardians is the degree of complexity in most application processes. Complexity can force a prospective student to choose a less desired course that presents as a path of least resistance, which at times, leads to abandoning the application process. It is estimated that more than 50% of prospective college students leave their applications halfway because of the complexity of application processes. Frontlearn Institute’s application is highly simplified and calls for responses to straightforward questions and instructions.
The application page at Frontlearn Institute takes the student directly to the application form. The application form comprises fields that take responses for every important information required to start the process for onboarding a prospective student. The application page can be accessed from the top primary menu, the footer menu, and the call to action sections that have the relevant application buttons. This page is compatible with both tablet and mobile views and allows anyone with internet access to process their initial processes of the application from any device.
Since online applications have increased in number, some prospective students along with their guardians have become worried that the electronic submissions might not work. At Frontlearn Institute, we have embedded the right security layers to ensure that prospective students’ data is securely transmitted and stored at Frontlearn Institute’s servers. We also confirm our applications by redirecting their application form to a confirmation page or confirmation message popup.
There are several considerations to ensure that we can handle applicants’ data. First, Frontlearn Institute has an efficient data tracking mechanism that allows our admission office to track every application to completion. This also permits Frontlearn Institute to contact applicants who have not submitted their applications and assist them to complete the process. The capacity to track application completions also alerts the developer of the application to the potential problem in the online application form.
At Frontlearn Institute, we are attracted to quality and seek to ensure that our prospective students can get on board and begin their career journeys without any delays.
