“High school juniors hoping to begin college in the fall of 2021 are not able to visit campuses in person, but they and their families have many ways to explore their options while staying safe at home.”
Students should register for each panel 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.
Parents should register their students using their student’s information.
The intended audience of this program is juniors and underclassmen located in the United States. Please share this opportunity with your students and encourage them to register. Counselors are also welcome to register and participate!

What technology does a student need to participate?
