UC Santa Barbara: Using ActiveMatch and RepVisits to Find Best-Fit Students

Using ActiveMatch to promote the university within Naviance has given UCSB the opportunity to connect with many students who are potentially a good fit. “We’re able to pinpoint areas and individuals who can see themselves at UCSB,” said Cuca Acosta, Associate Director. In recent years, as the university has incorporated more in-state recruitment, Ms. Acosta noted, “We could reconnect with students in our own back yard. That was the hidden gem.”

Best Practice Ideas to Make the Most of Your ActiveMatch Connections

We’ve talked to a number of Naviance ActiveMatch customers who said they weren’t doing anything special with the students who opt-in to connecting with their institutions. In some cases, they don’t even import the names of students who have connected with them via ActiveMatch, because “the student is already in our inquiry database.”

Connecting the Dots

As almost everyone involved in the college application process knows, a CEEB code (short for College Entrance Examination Board) is a unique code assigned to high schools and colleges to ensure that test scores, transcripts and other application documents are submitted to the right institutions. A CEEB code identifies the institution the student comes from as well as where they are going.
