Ci supports the connectivity of both students and colleges, where they can instantly engage through an app experience . Ci is the modern day "mailbox" dedicated 100% to college recruitment.

GenZ students are the first 100% mobile generation. And, all teens, no matter the demographic, use their smart phones constantly, and for everything — especially when it comes to researching colleges and navigating the college planning journey. College Interactive evolved from our decades of experience in admissions marketing. It is the first and only mobile app dedicated to college search and prospect engagement, providing you with a new and powerful communication channel to plug directly into your recruitment communication strategy … and directly into the palm of students’ hands.

The Ci mobile app is the modern day mailbox. And, it's 100% dedicated to college, providing you direct and immediate access to engage, and convert more leads to campus visits, applications and enrollments than all the other traditional channels combined. Part of any effective strategy includes an omni-channel approach with multiple touch points. With our advanced mobile app technology, not only will you engage effectively with your candidates where they are (on their phones), but you’ll also enhance the investments of all of your other legacy channels.

What the Ci Community is Saying

When College Interactive approached us in 2014, we immediately saw the value for our students to easily navigate and find colleges that would fit them best on Ci. Our students live and breath on their smart devices and Ci is an extremely convenient tool for them to use.
