History of CollegeNET, Inc

CollegeNET, Inc. began serving the administrative automation needs of higher education in 1979 with the creation of Schedule25®, the first automated classroom scheduling program. We followed this breakthrough with the development of R25®, the first campus-wide class, event, space, and resource management system. CollegeNET became the first company to deliver a web-based graphical analysis tool for campus space planning, X25®. Building on these scheduling innovations, our engineers have most recently introduced 25Live®, an advanced web-based event scheduling and publishing system.

At the dawn of the web, CollegeNET, Inc. also became the first company to deliver administrative Software as a Service (SaaS) to higher education. Our multi-patented Intelligent Connections® web-based admissions system now transparently serves admissions forms and provides accompanying administrative support services for hundreds of major campuses around the world. Extending the SaaS theme, we have recently introduced the engaging What•Do•You•Think?® faculty and course evaluation system. What•Do•You•Think? regularly helps campuses set new records for student participation in course and faculty evaluations.

CollegeNET, Inc. is a major contributor to college students. We have distributed over $600,000 in scholarships through our groundbreaking scholarship election portal – the first site on the web to give students the power to decide who will win scholarship support.
