C3 provides important innovations and benefits for students and guidance counselors. The student/guidance counselor side of the C3 applications service means a better, simpler way to apply to college. Instead of paper, whiteout, and snailmail, students and counselors can use the web to develop a complete, error-checked admissions application. Given that all C3 application forms are based on a professional level database management system, you can complete your application securely over successive internet sessions.
Students and guidance counselors can hyperlink from C3 directly to the ACT Assessment web registration site. Similar to the admissions application service, this web based registration system makes it simpler, easier, and faster to register for the ACT Assessment.
Students and guidance counselors can also take advantage of the free, powerful C3 College Search engine. Based on thorough, accurate data compiled about colleges through ACT’s Institutional Data Questionnaire, the C3 college web search provides one of the most comprehensive, accurate, up-to-date technologies available for efficiently culling through college information and identifying suitable colleges for study.
Visit the C3 site often to take advantage of the growing suite of web based services provided by ACT and CollegeNET.
C3–short for College Connector/CollegeNET–is a suite of web based admissions services developed jointly by ACT, Inc. and CollegeNET.
C3‘s primary service entails developing and maintaining for your college a fully web-based, custom-tailored, admissions application faithfully branded to your institution. As such, you may point to it directly from your institution homepage without compromising the look and feel appropriate to your college’s image. The C3 admissions application service was pioneered by CollegeNET and currently serves approximately 250 institutions worldwide.
In addition to providing you with a web-based admissions application you can seamlessly present through your own homepage, ACT and CollegeNET also make your application directly available from several highly targeted, trafficked websites including this C3 site. Because the C3 website is heavily promoted by ACT and CollegeNET to thousands of high school guidance counselors and hundreds of thousands of students taking the ACT assessment, you gain important, targeted potential for attracting applications to your institution.
The C3 web applications service also provides numerous efficiency and workflow enhancement benefits to your institution. These include the receipt of complete, error-checked admissions application forms that can be directly uploaded to your computerized admissions systems (eg. PeopleSoft, Datatel, SCT Banner). Further, the C3 system provides several industry leading back-end features that ensure efficient, personalized communications with prospective applicants.
