Frederick, MD, May 21, 2007 – Regent Education, the leading provider of financial aid management software solutions for higher education institutions, today announced that Glendale Community College has selected Regent Enterprise as their financial aid management solution for deployment across their campuses. Glendale selected Regent as the financial aid module to be integrated with their ERP application.

"We chose to upgrade to Regent Enterprise because of Regent?s outstanding customer service coupled with its extensive experience within the California community college system, making Regent an ideal match for Glendale," said Patricia Hurley, Glendale?s Associate Dean and Director of Financial Aid. "Regent Enterprise will further streamline our processes and help us tremendously with ever-changing compliance issues as we manage over $18 million per year in financial aid scholarships and grants."

Located in Glendale, CA, Glendale Community College has a college-credit enrollment of about 15,000 day and evening students, and approximately 10,000 others are reached through the adult education program, specialized job training programs such as JTPA and GAIN, and contract instruction administered by the Professional Development Center. Glendale is joining other California institutions that have selected Regent, such as Allan Hancock College, Feather River College, Mendocino Community College, Monterey Peninsula College, Pasadena City College, Rio Hondo College, and Santa Rosa Junior College.

"The key for me when choosing a software solution is affordability and return on investment," said Dave Roswell, Glendale?s Dean of Information & Technology. "Regent is able to provide us with a solution that can be implemented and launched quickly and won?t be a big drag on our IT staff. Other solutions require a lot of time dealing with consultants and that results in high implementation costs."

With nearly 30 years of Higher Education knowledge and experience, Regent offers the market?s first, best-of-breed financial aid software solution that is 100% Web-based, developed on open standards architecture and designed to interoperate seamlessly with any ERP system. Regent?s strategic solutions are enabling higher education institutions across America to achieve enrollment, compliance and student access goals.

"Financial aid is an extremely complex regulated business process. Regent Enterprise automates this process in an easy to implement, easy-to-use package," said Mike Ratti, Regent?s CEO. "We are very excited to welcome Glendale into the Regent family."
