College Greenlight

Support and recruit first-generation, lower income, and historically underserved students

We are thrilled to announce the launch of Appily, the new all-in-one student website for confident college choices! Appily brings together EAB’s market-leading student resources—Cappex, YouVisit, Greenlight Match and Global Match,—to serve as the home for everything students need to plan, decide, and apply to college.

Explore or register for the webinar to learn more about what this means for your enrollment team.

College Greenlight is the nation's largest community of professionals supporting and recruiting first-generation, lower-income, and historically underserved students.

By leveraging our nationwide network of Community Based Organizations (CBOs) to reach students and their advocates earlier, you can develop a diverse pipeline of students who are more likely to apply, enroll, and succeed.

Expand your reach

Showcase your institution to underserved students

Through your Cappex college profile page, College Greenlight students learn about the academic, social, cultural, and financial offerings at your school.

The more students can visualize themselves on your campus, the more confident they will feel communicating with your team and applying for admission.

Bring your admissions staff together for a session with our college success team. Introduce your staff to best practices for recruiting underrepresented students and maintaining CBO partnerships and keep equity at the forefront of your admissions cycle.

Branded Communication

Promote your diversity and inclusion initiatives

Students often fail to enter the applicant pool due to a lack of information about the admissions and financial aid process. By launching branded communications and event invitations to our college access community, you can demystify the admissions and financial aid process and increase your applicant pool.
