WACAC Fairs

WACAC’s annual College Fairs provides students with the opportunity to meet representatives from colleges and universities from all over the country and beyond. We are excited to announce that Western Association for College Admission Counseling will be partnering with StriveScan to host multiple virtual fairs in place of our in-person events this fall. This virtual format exposes students to a wide range of colleges, while still being time- and cost-efficient for our Member Colleges and Universities!

Students

Students can register for a session in each 45-minute time-block. To do so, click the Student Registration link for each session of interest. If students are interested in attending sessions that are running concurrently, please continue to register for both sessions so colleges are receiving your information.

Once registered, students will receive a confirmation email with a unique link to join the Zoom webinar. Students also receive a barcode in the confirmation email; however, please note 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 session. StriveScan does not sell or share personally identifiable student information with any other third parties. Students are encouraged to attend these sessions live. Sessions will be recorded and accessible at a later date.

Parents

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

Counselors

Please share this opportunity with your students and encourage them to register! High school counselors can also register using the Counselor Registration links on each session.
