College Fairs

College Fair Participation

PNACAC is excited to partner with StriveScan to provide student scanning technology at our regional college fairs. The cost of using StriveScan is included in all PNACAC fair registrations; there is no need to purchase additional access codes or scanners. For more information, we recommend watching the two-minute intro video at 

  • Colleges registered for PNACAC fairs will receive information from StriveScan on how to create an account, download their app, and start scanning student barcodes on their iPhone, Android, or iPad (no other device needed!). 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 aStriveScan logo CSV Excel file. If you have multiple reps attending from the same institution, both can scan from their own phones.
  • Students attending the fairs go to the registration page at 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 of all of the colleges and representatives they met along with their contact information and social media profiles.

PNACAC invites any Title IV eligible and regionally-accredited non-profit college, university, other post-secondary institution, or program offering curricular study leading to a degree or diploma to participate in the PNACAC College Fair Program. International non-profit universities that offer academic degrees or diplomas that are sanctioned by the country's Ministry of Higher Education or by US accrediting associations are also eligible to participate. Non-profit, CBO, state or federal grant supported programs with a primary mission of promoting college enrollment and who are approved in advance based on the assessment of the PNACAC College Fair Chair and the PNACAC Presidents may be granted limited participation on a case-by-case and space-available basis. All participating institutions must be members of PNACAC and agree to comply with NACAC's Statement of Principles of Good Practice (SPGP) / Code of Ethics and Professional Practices (CEPP). PNACAC reserves the right to refuse or revoke the registration of any institution or organization.

NACAC College FairsNACAC College Fair Logo

The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) sponsors the following National College Fairs in the Pacific Northwest. Additional information can be found at Students can pre-register for the college fairs at By doing so, students and parents will receive a personalized barcode with their contact and academic information that they can print and bring to the fairs. When colleges and universities scan their barcode, they retrieve the information and are able to follow up with students after the fair. This saves the time of filling out individual information cards, thus allowing students to visit more booths during the fair.
