But with proper preparation and clear communication, you can make it much easier for all involved, and pleased parents will put your school on the fast track to enrollment success. The following advice is useful for any school that's looking ahead, but we've also included additional information for schools using Blackbaud Tuition Management TM . 1 Determine the enrollment and re-enrollment processes that works best for your school. Most tuition management systems have several enrollment and re-enrollment options. Your school should carefully weigh the pros and cons of each before making them available. For example, consider the options available in Blackbaud Tuition Management and how your school might handle them: • Automatic enrollment through the contract integration with Blackbaud Enrollment Management System ™ provides the quickest and cleanest solution for both parents and the school. • Parents complete the online enrollment/re-enrollment process; this option removes the data entry responsibility from the school but is potentially redundant for families that have completed enrollment contracts. • The school provides family demographic information on a spreadsheet and then uploads it into the system; the parents are emailed a link to complete the enrollment process, which is a good way to split the workload between parents and the school. • The school manually completes the entire online enrollment/re-enrollment process for families using information supplied on the enrollment contract; this option isn't ideal for schools looking to gain bulk efficiencies, but it is helpful in one-off situations where a family is unable to complete the enrollment themselves.
