Great software for school


Floreminda T.

My own experience with Campus Cafe software

Over-all I can say that the system is highly recommendable.

Campus Cafe is the way!

Overall, compared to our homegrown system, I’d say Campus Cafe is worth it! Our work is now more streamlined and time we spend on projects and validation of record accuracy has been cut in half! I would recommend Campus Cafe for institutions that are similar to our size (population of 500 or less).

It was a one-stop shop! We had all of our information on paper and excel documents.

Cons

The learning curve, and the language of the software is not intuitive.

Over-all I can say that the system is highly recommendable.

Pros

Student can access online their billing statements and can also pay online.
Group billing makes my job easier as I don't have to manually charge student when they enroll for class. The software charges them automatically but I need to post it before it can be reflected on the students' accounts -- this gives me the chance to review the billing first before posting it.

Cons

Once I posted the financial aid of the student, I could not delete it anymore if I happen to make a mistake. I have to make another entry to negate it. I prefer that I can just delete the error.
Some postings done I can still delete but the system does not give me a warning before I delete. I prefer that there will be a pop-up warning me about the deletion just to be sure that I review again before I delete something.

I would recommend Campus Cafe for institutions that are similar to our size (population of 500 or less).

Pros

Reports are easily accessible and customizable! This is such a great feature for the Registration Department as we need accurate statistics immediately.

The ability to also customize webpages, email notifications, triggers, courses as needed gave us the power to be more flexible and creative with how we focus our energy and time.

Cons

There have been a few glitches in the system even after working through setup. An example of this is syncing Campus Cafe with Canvas LMS- students who withdraw or drop would sometimes sync with Canvas and other times it would not. So there was that inconsistency.

It is a very functional system that helped us automate some of the important processes for students and the school.

Pros

Tracking activities can easily be added into the system to make sure that when students have changes in academic activities, we can monitor and send out the required tracking mechanisms.
Can alert staff if there are triggers, and/or ability to track and monitor student activities like withdrawal, dropping from course or from the program.

Cons

I am still figuring out how to maximize its features so I can use for my regulars IPEDS reporting and to generate other reports required by the state or accreditor.

Great product! Glad my business switched to Campus Cafe!!

Pros

Campus cafe has many many options to use for schools. I personally use for the financial aid part and find it very simple to use and very easy to select options for viewing for the students.

Cons

I feel there are a lot of items I have not even used yet, but have been using this for a few years already. It probably does more than I even know!!
