Beginning this fall, electronic student scanning will be available at all NJACAC College Fairs using the StriveScan app.
High School Counselors:
Encourage your students to register for a barcode before they attend the fair at www.strivefair.com. The day after the fair, they will receive a report with information about each college with whom they scanned. You may also download and print StriveScan’s handout for students.
Registering for StriveScan is easy, and you can scan student barcodes on your smartphone or tablet. After you register with StriveScan, you will receive instructions and a code to activate scanning at the fairs. Student data can be exported instantly. When students sign up, StriveScan sends them a barcode via text message and email. The next day, students receive an email with a report on of all of the colleges and representatives they met along with their contact information and social media profiles.
