Minnesota ACAC is pleased to announce we have partnered with StriveScan to bring their student barcode scanning technology to our college fairs starting this spring, 2022. StriveScan will make the experience more efficient and productive for students and colleges, plus provide Minnesota ACAC and the fair organizers with valuable data about the events.
StriveScan is used at college fairs around the country, including by other NACAC affiliates including Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, Great Plains, Rocky Mountain, Pacific Northwest, Western, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Hawaii ACACs, other ACRAO affiliates including Kansas, Utah, West Virginia, Virginia, and the Carolinas, plus the Colleges That Change Lives, Jesuit Excellence Tour, Montana Post Secondary Educational Opportunities Council, and more. More than 2,500 colleges have used StriveScan at hundreds of college fairs around the country and in 68 different countries.
College reps use the StriveScan app on their iPhone, Android, or iPad to scan students' barcodes. Reps can instantly view the student's profile information and take notes right in the app. After the fair, reps export the student data with one click, instantly, to a CSV file.
To start scanning at a fair, you’ll need to purchase a StriveScan Fair Credit. The cost is $24 per Credit, and one Credit unlocks scanning at one fair. It includes unlimited student scans and there is no additional charge for multiple reps or multiple devices. Credits can be purchased individually, can be used at any StriveScan fair around the country, and never expire. This is designed to give you lots of flexibility.
You’ll no longer need to wait for your data, purchase lead packages, app codes, or rent scanners for each rep.
Counselors should encourage their students to pre-register before attending a Minnesota Education Fair (MEF) by directing them to StriveFair.com. Use StriveScan’s handout for students to assist with student registration!
For more information, we recommend watching the two-minute intro video at www.strivescan.com. Contact the MEF Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org or StriveScan at email@example.com. More information will be provided to colleges during fair registration.
