Enhancing International Student Enrollment: Streamlining the Process

Enrollment cliff


The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) conducted a study revealing that approximately 10% of students withdraw their applications from colleges due to late response times. For students eagerly awaiting a response from their top-choice college, a delayed reply can lead to disappointment and an increased likelihood of withdrawing their applications. To address this issue and improve the admissions process, Sia’s Auto Transcript Processor offers a transformative solution that accelerates response time. In this blog post, we will explore how Sia’s innovative technology can streamline admissions and enhance the applicant experience.

The Impact of Late Response Times

Late response times have a significant influence on students’ decision-making processes. When students receive delayed responses from their preferred colleges, they may question the institution’s level of interest or dedication to prompt communication. As a result, students become more inclined to withdraw their applications and explore other opportunities. This not only affects the university’s ability to attract qualified applicants but also impacts its reputation as an efficient and responsive institution.
