We've spent the past decade working with a selective, diverse client base, honing Slate into the finely-tuned, robust system that enables admissions offices to continuously evolve and advance their programs and processes. Slate licenses are simple and affordable, restoring budgets and time to the student-facing programs that matter most. Request a demo or schedule a campus visit with any of our schools to experience Slate first hand.
A superior toolset...
Designed and developed from the ground-up, Slate is tailored to address the challenges of selective admissions, outreach, and recruitment. Our powerful tools are complemented by our dedication to ongoing development, providing our partner colleges and universities with the latest and greatest technology on an up-to-the-moment basis at no additional charge.
...at a cost savings...
A single yearly license agreement puts the full power of Slate at your disposal, and it comes at a cost that immediately saves in time and dollars. With no per-user, per-application, per-support-hour, per-implementation, or other setup or usage fees, a Slate subscription takes the guesswork out of institutional budgeting so that you can focus on achieving your admissions goals.
...for a smooth transition.
Slate implementations are high-speed and laser-focused, and they don't require additional hires, IT resources, or other costly investments. We have extensive experience working with a wide variety of environments and institutions, and our care and dedication has ensured that every implementation has succeeded. Since inception, we have maintained 100% client retention.
To name just a few: Caltech, Carleton, Claremont McKenna, Columbia, Davidson, Duke, Emory, Grinnell, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Haverford, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Rice, UChicago, UPenn, Vanderbilt, Wesleyan, Williams, Yale, and more than 175 other top programs across 3 continents.
Technology built for admissions
Slate uses rich, modern technologies to provide an unparalleled user experience that supports the entire process of higher education admissions. There's never any need to look up students by ID numbers, memorize activity codes, or coordinate data feeds for the daily tasks. Through a clean, straightforward web-based interface, you can find, parse, and edit information easily, giving you one less thing to worry about in your already busy day.
Designed to disappear
Slate shifts the focus away from the technology and towards the admissions content and process. Through intuitive interfaces including drag-and-drop, what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG), one-click, auto-suggest, and other smart design choices, the technology disappears into the background, returning your focus to the aspects of your job that matter most.
Revolutionary online reading
Slate features a one-of-a-kind application reading environment that dwarfs competing solutions. Without requiring any third-party software or plug-ins (not even Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, or Java), Slate Reader provides a seamless environment in which you can read application materials, review digital portfolios, submit ratings and comments, and route files through your workflow.
Our innovative toolset allows for highly detailed customizations, providing real-time PDF dashboards, summaries, and integrated reporting. Design your workflow to include granular permissions, automatic file movements, and rating-averaging algorithms, among other custom rules.
Dynamic portal technologies
Connect with prospective students and applicants through dynamic information portals and targeted communications strategies which tailor your message to their unique and specific needs. Applicants can use Slate's self-service portal to track the receipt of their application materials, register for campus visits and interviews, submit additional documents (by upload or by fax-to-file digital imaging), and receive their decision of admission, all with the convenience and security of modern communications.
Engagement technologies, including drip marketing campaigns to help nudge applicants through the process, combined with powerful analytics, provide you with the tools and data necessary to maximize your yield and build the desired class.
