EVENTS COMING UP:

Sessions include Admissions Myth Buster, What Juniors should be doing now, Health Science programs, Exploring Music Programs, NCAA Eligibility, NC College Sessions, VA College sessions, HBCU Night, and 200+ More!!


Student Registration
Students should register below 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. StriveScan does not sell or share personally identifiable student information with any other third parties. Students should participate live so they can ask questions and interact with the college admission counselors. If students are unable to attend live, we still encourage them to register for the sessions they are interested in and recordings will be available here later.


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

Registration is now open students for our largest virtual college fair yet, featuring 130+ Coalition member schools. See a full list of Coalition Members here.

Learn more about the event, scheduled for Sept. 16 and 17, and please extend an invitation* to your students.

There are many different types of college applications and we encourage you to do your research about what fits best for your individual needs. Not all colleges use every application- make your college list before you begin creating accounts. We think the Common Application is a great place to start because so many required documents are linked to your accounts to make the application process as seamless as possible for your, your counselor, your parents, and your teachers.


If you need help trying to determine the best way to apply please email Mrs. Bishton to discuss your options at lbishton@richland2.org. Below you'll find a link to our Application Tracker. Please use this document as needed to organize your college applications.
