Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Comprehensive Review: AEs have the authority to make admissions decisions through UA's comprehensive review process. While the team has standard guidelines we follow, each applicant is reviewed uniquely and individually, so the AE must interpret operating policies and use their discretion and professional judgment to make an admissions decision.
  • Evaluation: AEs exercise experienced discretion with sensitive student data and manage a high volume of applicants. AEs are self-directed and review all applicant materials submitted and calculate/articulate coursework to determine if the applicant meets admissibility requirements. AEs are responsible for calculating accurate high school and college GPAs for admissions and merit aid awarding which has direct financial impact on the institution; AEs bear the risk and responsibility of this task on a daily basis. AEs are experts in their field and are often go-to sources for knowledge and answering questions from Admissions leadership, Recruitment leadership and other colleagues within and outside of UA such as UA College representatives, HS counselors and HS Registrars.
  • Admissions "TAPs" tickets: AEs independently conduct investigation on requests and issues submitted via a "TAPs" ticketing system. AEs are expected to be experts in their assigned categories and reply with excellent customer service while handling the issue, concern, question and resolve the matter. Handling tickets in an accurate and efficient manner impacts yield of applicants and prospects which directly impacts UA net tuition revenue.
  • Speciality Population/Project: AEs represent Admissions & UA to process specific populations such as Re-Admits, NewStart, selective majors, HS non-degree seeking and more. AEs work directly with program coordinators/directors to determine goals and procedures. AEs help achieve objectives by running queries and reports to maintain integrity of data and systems.
  • Email communications, Training/coaching and updating documentation: AEs are expected to be experts in their areas and provide input, advice and knowledge for management, attend ongoing training to enhance knowledge in their field, review policies and know when it is appropriate to deviate from them or not (practice professional judgment), maintain up-to-date documentation, and present training and refresher sessions on policies and procedures. Additionally, AEs share input on determining decision time frames, company objectives and vision, and how to approach special initiatives for yield and recruitment.
