Link for Brief Overview of Student Registration

Student Registration

Students attending the fairs go to the registration page at www.StriveFair.com and fill out a quick form on their phone or computer (in advance or at the door). When they sign up, StriveScan sends them a barcode via text message and email. The next day, students receive an email with a report on all of the colleges and representatives they met along with their contact information and social media profiles. There is no cost for students.


Counselors should encourage their students to pre-register before attending a CCASD or DACAC-ND Fair by directing them to StriveFair.com. UseStriveScan’s registration handouts to assist with student registration!

More Information

For more information, we recommend watching the two-minute intro video at www.strivescan.com. Contact the CCASD or DACAC-ND Fair Committee at XX or StriveScan at help@strivescan.com. More information will be provided to colleges during fair registration. 

StriveScan  Information for College Representatives

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 Excel file. If you have multiple reps attending from the same institution, both can scan from their own phones. The cost for colleges is $24 per fair (separate from fair registration) and includes unlimited student scans.

Additionally, StriveScan will be offering a fair credit promotion over the summer, where you buy a certain amount of fair credits to prepare for CCASD and DACAC-ND fairs and receive fair credits for free! We will be in touch over the summer once the fair credit promotion is launched!
