Why stars? We understand that every organization has unique initiatives and recruiting interests. By using stars, we give our Partners creative freedom to choose the recruitment strategy that works for them.

What is a star? Each tier includes a certain number of stars for the academic year. Whatever tier you choose, you own this number of stars to "spend" on your chosen Viterbi student engagement and recruiting activities. Each activity with its corresponding star value is listed on the right. If something is labeled as “included” it means that this service is 0 stars for all VCC Partners, regardless of what tier you choose! 

Not sure where to begin? We have created proposed recruitment plans for each VCC Partner tier to  recommend how to best use your stars. View our proposed recruiting plans below.
