Grand View University - Admissions Website
Grand View University, a liberal arts university located in Des Moines, Iowa was founded in 1896. Grand View offers bachelors and master’s degrees to 2,200 full and part-time students. The decision to attend college – and select the right one – is a very personal and emotional experience for a student. Grand View understands this and provides a personalized experience to students applying to the college via their admissions website.
Grand View partnered with Spindustry Digital on web design and programming needs for their main college website and admissions website. In order to best meet the needs of future students, Grand View needed an admissions site that would present applicable information to students as they progressed along in the admissions process, especially one that is adapted to work in the mobile and tablet environment.
Spindustry built an experience that guides students through different phases of the admissions process. During the engagement phase, prospective students can customize their view based on their interests. Throughout the process, the student can mark favorites, choose a site audio guide and customize the background. Once the student moves into the application phase, they are presented with a checklist of documents to submit. When a prospective student is accepted, the experience then shifts to preparing for enrollment.
