FROM PAPER TO PAPERLESS:

Reporting capabilities and communication with students
GREATLY EXPANDED
Automating our international student services with Terra Dotta has made a big impact on our registration and advising success.

Home to 12,000 students, Citrus College is the fifth oldest community college in California and boasts a transfer rate of more than 80% to the University of California’s nine undergraduate campuses. And, with its location in the foothills of Los Angeles, it’s luring a growing base of international students.

But, a few years ago, that growth left the college’s international student program buried in files, Excel spreadsheets and other paperwork, all byproducts of its manual processes. Citrus College was at a crossroads:

  • The volume of international applicants was doubling.
  • Campus leaders mandated all departments go paperless.
  • A homegrown software solution was cumbersome and labor intensive.
Turning to Terra Dotta
Citrus leaders looked at their options and picked Terra Dotta.
The solution:
  • Offered strong data visualization and storage.
  • Provided intuitive query and reporting functionality.
  • Expedited I-20 processing times.
  • Integrated seamlessly with Banner by Ellucian and SEVIS.
