The Degree audit feature keeps track of students’ degree or diploma completion and provides accurate information for administrators to determine certification and licensure eligibilities.

Promote Lifelong Learning:

Continuing education provides opportunities for individuals to update their skills, pursue new interests, or transition into different careers throughout their lives, promoting lifelong learning and professional development.

Administrators create application forms that allow a student to directly get admitted as a continuing education student bypassing time-consuming admissions steps. Once admitted, students can enroll in one or more courses.

By offering frictionless admissions and enrolment experiences, trade schools attract more students, increase their revenue, and provide life-long learning opportunities for the students.
