Whether your top priority is to increase recruitment, raise educational attainment or improve college efficiency, UNIT-e is ready to support you.

Accurately capturing the full range of information from enrolling students is of paramount importance. That’s why UNIT-e offers a range of features, from full validation to enabling students to pay online at the point of enrolment.
