Student Registration

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 and the sponsoring organization, CTCL. 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 high school students located in the United States. There is one session specifically for International Students located outside the United States and also one session specifically for Counselors.

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

Colleges That Change Lives (CTCL) began as a loose collaboration among the 40 schools profiled in Loren Pope’s classic book, Colleges That Change Lives. For over 20 years, our programs have given thousands of students and parents guidance in their college search. In 1996, the colleges and universities formed a non-profit organization to keep Loren’s message alive – the college search should be about finding a list of colleges that are a good academic, social, and financial fit. The non-profit has 45 member colleges and universities; each member institution has been profiled in at least one version of the book. Learn more
