Revolutionizing Administrative Processes in Higher Education with AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have long been associated with futuristic advancements, but their impact on higher education is already apparent. AI is rapidly transforming the way campuses operate, streamlining back-office tasks, improving efficiency, and allowing staff to focus on more high-value responsibilities.

In light of enrollment fluctuations and financial challenges, higher education institutions are increasingly turning to advanced technological solutions to streamline operations. By implementing AI, universities can simplify complex processes, optimize resources, and manage budgets more effectively.

One area where AI is making a significant impact is in the admissions process. Traditional methods often involve time-consuming tasks, but generative AI can automate tasks like extracting information from transcripts, making the process more efficient. By partnering with higher education institutions, Laserfiche has shown how generative AI can expedite initial applicant screening, saving time and resources for staff.

For example, SUNY Empire State College implemented AI-powered transcript processing, reducing response times from a week to less than an hour. This not only enhanced student engagement but also enabled staff to handle higher application volumes more effectively.
