Apply Online for Sales Competition Team (SCT) and Internal Sales Competition (ISC) to be a Competitor or a Peer Coach

  • Deadlines for SCT teams and ISC competitors are September 28 for the fall team and January 24 for the spring team.  Students interested for spring team should still apply in the fall and compete in ISC so we know you are interested, and we can plan for the spring.
  • Students who apply and cannot compete at ISC due to the limited number of competitor spots will serve as workers for the ISC to help run the event.  ISC workers also receive networking opportunities (see the ISC page for the worker signup).
  • For those selected to tryout for SCT (typically only done for spring team), those times will be sent out shortly after the application window closes and will be based on the submitted availability in the application form.  Tryouts are January 26+27 for UTISC and NCSC.
