  • Throughout the entire 45 minutes, students will be able to ask questions via chat. 
  • There will be multiple concurrent group sessions happening each hour. 
  • Students will register through StriveScan for each group session they want to attend. 
  • All 6 institutions in the group will receive the StriveScan student data for all of the students who registered for your group’s session.
  • Your total time commitment is approximately one hour.
  • Sessions are hosted by StriveScan via Zoom Webinars (students will not be on camera).

Q&A, Logistics & Strive Scan

How do students find out about these sessions?
Like every year, the CACRAO NC & SC Educational Opportunity volunteer committees work diligently to coordinate with districts and schools to promote events. We have also teamed up with N3CSDPA and the South Carolina Technical College System. In partnership with these organizations, information will be publicized. We recommend also notifying students in your database of the opportunity to connect virtually with your registered time(s).

When do I get the student registrant information?
Strive Scan works quickly to send secure student data information that is compatible with CRMs typically within the same day of the event but within 48-72 hours just like you would get after a college fair.

What do I get for the money?
-Data security & privacy
-Student/Counselor registrant inquiry information
-Training webinars with Strive Scan to ensure familiarity of platform 
-Report of Q&A typed during presentation
-Promotion by CACRAO with help from the North Carolina Community Colleges and South Carolina Technical College System. 
-Effective time spent recruiting, without leaving your office.
