"Designed with input from students, staff, and the higher education community, Apply serves as a vital tool for institutions striving to boost enrollment while simplifying the experience for applicants and staff."

Ellucian Apply offers a seamless experience for prospective students and features secure, password-free multi-factor authentication that expedites the application process while maintaining strong security standards. Apply's language detection and configuration capabilities also support institutions as they work to build broader applicant pools. Furthermore, the solution provides customizable templates for administrators and staff to facilitate personalized applications tailored to specific student needs.
