Audience: Postsecondary admission professionals
Description: This webinar explores the best automated practices and communication plans for open houses, campus tours, and virtual events to ensure the greatest return on investment. While organizing and executing these events, communication is key and having the necessary data to make the most informed decisions is vital. Since turning to VisitDays earlier this year, the University of Pittsburgh has improved the attendance rate of its Spring visit programs by five percent. In addition, the university has saved over $20,000 in food costs for their spring visit events because they are able to predict who will be in attendance in advance. In today’s environment, a university needs to ensure that they are deploying the best possible programs to have prospective students commit to their institution.

*This webinar is sponsored by VisitDays and is a part of NACAC’s Industry Insights webinar series.

Description: Students with learning disabilities must embark on their postsecondary education with understandings about their learning profile, self-advocacy skills, and a sense of agency necessary to develop effective academic routines and take advantage of available support in the college environment. Much can be done while students are still in high school to prepare for this responsibility and for success in their postsecondary studies. Join us for this webinar as Ace Parsi of the National Center for Learning Disabilities and Sarah Williams of East Carolina University's STEPP program discuss practical tips and resources that counselors, teachers, students, and their families can use to prepare students for transition to college.
