The Ci Difference in Recruitment and Access

CiEngage - So Much More than a Name

Are you “purchasing names” of unknown suspects, and relying heavily on traditional channels like email and direct mail to reach potential candidates, promote your institution, get candidates engaged, and differentiate your college’s brand?

With Ci access students earlier in their college planning process:

  • Target students who are already demonstrating interest, and tracking candidate engagement.

  • Empower candidates to quickly decide if they align with your school and programs
