College Fairs

TACAC is partnering with StriveScan to host virtual college fairs for students in Texas. Since last spring, StriveScan has hosted virtual college fairs and other virtual college admission programs nationwide, with over 300,000 students and 2,000 colleges and universities participating.

Registration How-To and Data Security

Student, family, and counselor registration will open on Monday, February 1. There is no registration fee to attend the panel presentations or the college fairs. Registration for colleges is now closed. 

Students should register for each session that they want to attend. Once they register, they’ll receive a confirmation email with their unique link to join the Zoom webinar. (Students will also receive a barcode, but the barcode is not necessary for this virtual event.) 

When students register, they are sharing their registration information only with colleges presenting on that particular panel. StriveScan does not sell or share personally identifiable student information with any other third parties.

Students should participate live so they can ask questions and interact with the college admission counselors. If students are unable to attend live, we still encourage them to register for the sessions they are interested in and recordings will be available here later.

Parents

Parents should register their students using their student’s information.

Counselors

Please share this opportunity with your students and encourage them to register. Counselors are also welcome to register and participate in all sessions!
