The increased demand for more and more skilled workers has resulted in a boost in enrollment for career and technical colleges. As a result, the need for a student information system designed to meet the unique needs of these schools has become increasingly important. EMPOWER has been working closely with career and technical colleges to develop functions that are required from a student information system.

Some of the career and technical college-specific functions in EMPOWER include:

  • Course credits by credit hours (lab and lecture), clock hours, contact hours, or CEUs
  • Unlimited and flexible course fees
  • Unlimited institution defined transcript formats
  • Internship and placement services within one integrated module
  • Attendance and activity tracking by course section
  • Certificate granting process along with degree granting process
  • Financial aid processing by clock hours or by credit hours
  • Narrative faculty evaluations of students (along with traditional grading)
