STUDENTS & FAMILIESstrivescan students

Free and open to the public, PNACAC fairs connect you with colleges and universities in one convenient location.

Students: register in advance with StriveScan by filling out a quick form. After you sign up, StriveScan will send a barcode via text message and email. At the college fair, present your barcode to college representatives to receive more information about that college. The next day, receive an email with a report of all of the colleges and representatives you met, along with contact information and social media profiles.




Registration: No registration required to bring students the fair, however, if you register yourself with StriveScan and get your barcode scanned at five or more college booths, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a free PNACAC conference registration!
