Frequently Asked Questions
What is a College2Career Fair?
Our fairs consist of a 3 hour out-of-state and international college recruiting event, held on a weekday, in a community center or other off-campus venue. Our goal is to provide quality higher education options to interested and qualified academic and career pathway program students.
When are College2Career Fairs held?
Our fairs are scheduled for fall and spring, usually in October and April.
Which colleges and universities are invited to participate?

We invite high school juniors and seniors that are in academic and career pathway programs. Our spring Fairs include sophomores, juniors and uncommitted seniors.
We also invite community college students in Honors, Transfer, International and Veterans Programs.

Using the StriveScan mobile app, college representatives will be able to easily scan students’ barcodes to collect their information. This will save your institution the time and expense of processing hundreds of paper inquiry cards, while being environmentally-friendly and allowing students more time to have valuable conversations.
StriveScan is included with your fair registration.
