On the data processing side we handle all entry of prospects, test scores, applications, evaluations and matriculation. We also generate mass mailings, decision letters and scholarship award letters. Here is an example of the quantity we handle:
IP enters 6,000 admission applications annually.
IP enters approximately 40,000 prospects annually.
IP evaluates 5,000+ applicants annually.
IP matriculates 3,000 applicants annually.
We also image all applications from the previous year. (Excluding matriculated files). Currently we are assisting Student Financials with the imaging of refund requests. October - May is our busiest time. During these 8 months we are busy keeping up with applications, prospects and evaluations. When we get to the matriculating part, we know we are just about ready for the summer to begin. During the summer we are busy entering prospects and sending them various types of publications.
On the mail room side we handle all incoming/outgoing mail for the division. Mike signs for all packages (UPS, FedEx etc) and distributes the mail coming to us from the Mail House. We also have all forms just in case you need to send out a package. Mike also oversees the publications we store in the dungeon. He also handles mailings for several departments in the division.
