The application process was entirely manual at Creighton University’s study abroad office less than a decade ago. Sticky notes and file folders were used to track advising appointments. Searching for transcripts and other basic documents required an expedition to the file room. The process was time-consuming and inefficient.
Creighton’s study abroad team needed a better solution—something that not only streamlined its administrative processes but also digitized marketing brochures and materials. “It was time to enter the digital age,” said Lizzy Curran, Creighton’s Associate Director of Study Abroad and Special Global Programs.
In 2014, Creighton made the move to Terra Dotta’s Study Abroad solution.
Green light to efficiencies
Online applications that help drive a better experience for students
Digital management and automated processing of all student data
With these new capabilities, Creighton now enjoys continued program growth with big time savings.
STUDY ABROAD GROWTH
Increased concerns over safety and security for all travelers prompted Creighton to invest in AlertTraveler, Terra Dotta’s app that monitors students’ locations and sends them critical information in real-time.
Thanks to AlertTraveler, it was effortless for Creighton to quickly communicate with students at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
Today, Lizzy is eager to continue to build on the success of Creighton’s partnership with Terra Dotta.
