Cañada College has launched a digital marketing campaign in Mexico to attract qualified applications from prospective students. The campaign includes a Spanish-language landing page, banner ads, and a white paper called “How to get into top U.S. universities.”
The digital campaign aims to educate prospective Mexican students on the benefits of starting their higher education in the U.S. at a community college. Students can earn an associate degree within two to three years for as little as $20,000 and transfer to top four-year universities in the U.S. Cañada College has transfer agreement guarantees with universities within the California State University (CSU) system, University of California (UC) system, and select private universities including Notre Dame de Namur and Golden Gate University. The campaign also features former Cañada students who have transferred and graduated from four-year universities including UC Berkeley.
