An A+ Application System
Administered by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, College Illinois! was established to make college accessible and affordable for Illinois students and families. With a College Illinois! 529 Prepaid Tuition Plan, families can lock in the cost of college and enjoy great tax benefits by prepaying for semesters of college tuition at today’s plan rates.
College Illinois! had no means to take online applications, and so the ability to purchase contracts through the site was a top priority.
Online Application System
Ascedia built College Illinois’ first online application system, which provided a user-friendly way for users to purchase contracts online.
The system handled the online application fee and credit card processing, offered online reporting and easy activity management and provided all necessary data handling to the 3rd party record’s manager through a secure transport of application data.
Built-in automation allowed for data to be collected with ease, provided real-time activity updates and application tracking, supported promotions and discounting, and provided a strong data architecture for CRM activities and segmentation.
New website features included rich media, videos, tutorials, planning wizards, blogs, educational content and a strong email marketing program.
