The American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO) recognized CollegeSource’s contributions to transfer at the AACRAO Transfer Conference in Chicago this June 30 – July 3. As the sole sponsor of the conference for the first two years, CollegeSource added its energy to AACRAO’s in establishing the conference as a critical resource for the staff of institutions of higher education who deal with transfer on a daily basis. CollegeSource has continued as the primary sponsor through this, the fifth year of the conference, and has been a key factor in the conference’s success.
Lee Furbek, AACRAO Transfer Conference Director, presented the award during the opening session, along with some kind words about the company’s more than 40-year history in providing resource-saving solutions to higher education. Lee highlighted the company’s drive to save colleges millions of dollars annually through collecting and archiving catalog data in a convenient and easily-accessible format. Since the 1970’s, the CollegeSource database has grown to encompass more than 60,000 catalogs online, and its portfolio has expanded to cover degree audit, student planning tools, and an array of transfer-related solutions.
