ConnectEdu Introduces Free Electronic Document Exchange for High Schools, Community Colleges, and Colleges

C!Doc Allows Educational Institutions to Receive Electronic Admissions Documents At No Cost

Boston, MA,- September 11, 2007 - ConnectEdu, a leader in college and career planning solutions has announced the availability of C!Doc, a free product allowing colleges to receive electronic admissions documents at no charge to students. C!Doc encourages colleges from across the country to streamline their admissions efficiencies with the ability to download electronic transcripts and recommendation letters from the 500,000 college applicants integrated in the Connect! Network™. Following simple installation and ConnectEdu credentialing, colleges will automatically receive secure electronic documents through Connect!.

“In our ongoing effort to make the going-to-college process more streamlined and efficient for students, parents, and counselors, we are now allowing free document exchange for high schools, community colleges, and colleges,” said Craig Powell, President of ConnectEdu. “We want to stop the movement of charging students for this process. We expect that any college exploring document exchange products will embrace a solution that does not place the financial burden on families, like we see in some state initiatives. C!Doc brings us one step closer to revolutionizing the college admissions process for everyone involved. Now, every college in the country has the immediate ability to receive electronic documents without concerns for budget constraints, technology integration, or government mandate. The future of college admissions is here.”

Since 2002, ConnectEdu has been creating a national network of high schools and colleges to build a data bridge between high schools and higher education that previously had not existed. In 2005, ConnectEdu made its premier web solution Connect! available to high schools at no cost. This free integration of students, parents and counselors into the Connect! Network democratizes access to higher education and streamlines the “going to college to career” process for a new generation of college-bound students. Now providing this new easy-to-deploy product at no cost to colleges, ConnectEdu demonstrates its continuing commitment to build a national network that benefits students by offering a more streamlined and comprehensive approach to college admissions.
