The Smart Choice for Higher Education

The Digital Transformation in Higher Education is Here

For the Client. With the Client.

The Jenzabar Difference

Jenzabar has built a partnership with its clients that is unique in the industry. Our associates have spent their careers working in higher education, providing them with unmatched insight into the long-term needs of our clients. We design our products to meet those needs, not to satisfy some fleeting trend in the marketplace. And we consult with our clients at every step of the design process, so we can match our vision to your vision. The result: products that are intuitive to use, affordable in cost, and powerful in action.

Our Mission

We believe everyone is a masterpiece with great work to do on Earth. Jenzabar's mission is to create pathways to empower all to know who they are, what work they are destined to do, and how they can unlock their full potential — at home, at work, and in the world!

Our Vision

We envision a world in which everyone, anywhere has the opportunity to find, learn, and live their true calling.

No matter the size of your enrollment or the scope of your programs, we can help you fulfill your mission. We have products designed for every institution. 

Four-Year Private

As private colleges and universities do not receive funds from state legislatures, you rely heavily on tuition and private contributions. Jenzabar helps you build strong relationships with your constituents. Not only is this good for students–it’s critical for your financial stability.

Four-Year Public

State-supported colleges and universities are often targets for cost cutting. Your institution is undoubtedly trying to do more with less. With Jenzabar, you’ll always get a high return on your technology investment.

Two-Year Institutions

It’s a difficult time as most two-year institutions are grappling with fluctuating enrollment and diminishing state support. Jenzabar equips you to respond to these challenges with a greater focus on student success and institutional accountability.

Continuing Education

Continuing education departments must meet the unique challenges of workforce development, certificate, adult learning, and other non-traditional programs. Jenzabar offers administrative software solutions that meet the needs of institutions offering non-traditional programs.


Consortia provide a forum for members to share ideas, concerns, and resources. Jenzabar partners with consortia to enhance the academic experience for students and faculty as well as to improve operational efficiencies through shared resources.

Specialized Schools

Whether your specialized college is focused on providing specific degree and/or certificate programs, Jenzabar will work with you to deliver on your mission.

Online Institutions

From promoting student success without the benefit of in-person interactions to providing the caliber of services required by accrediting organizations, online institutions face unique challenges. Jenzabar has the solutions to help you achieve your goals.

Associations & Organizations

Professional associations and membership organizations benefit their membership base by inspiring partnerships for learning within professional networks. Jenzabar can foster these learning opportunities and support the efficient operation of your organization.

Numbers Never Lie

At Jenzabar, we translate advances in technology into advances in educational opportunities. Our products let you transform your campus into a world-wide arena of learning, letting you expand your mission to any student, anywhere.

Hear From Our Customers

"Jenzabar has always been extremely helpful and supportive of our initiatives, whether it be implementing new products, being open to enhancement requests, training/consulting visits, operational assessments, etc. I can't possibly list all of the ways Jenzabar associates have helped me along the way in my years working with their products."

Bluefield University

"Jenzabar has improved our efficiency in many departments on campus. Our office of Student Success has developed a system of early intervention using the Jenzabar Retention software that has kept our retention rate consistently above 90% and increased our level of engagement with students. Workflow has been improved, access to student data has been simplified, and data and reporting tools are much more accurate."

"The experience we gained through working with the Jenzabar team has facilitated Charleston Southern University’s technological acceleration. The robustness and flexibility of the system enabled us to advance a print-focused, labor-intensive system, and completely automate and clean up the whole campus data-wise. We’ve gone paperless."
