NEW THIS YEAR! Automated scanners are available for purchase to receive complete and accurate student information. As students visit your table, you simply scan the barcode to capture the student’s data.

How does it work?

  • Students pre-register for the fair online. This produces a barcode they print and bring with them to the event.
  • As the students visit college and university tables, college admissions representatives have a hand-held device to scan the barcode and capture the student data. The college reps have complete discretion over whom they choose to scan.
  • Within 2-3 days of the fair college representatives receive an excel spreadsheet via email with all the information that was captured on fair day. No more entering all those cards!

Why make the switch?
College Fair Automation…

  • Maximizes students' time at the fair by eliminating tedious cards at every table
  • Streamlines traffic flow of the fair for both students and colleges
  • Provides an electronic format that insures accurate, complete, legible information for every student, every time
  • Supplies a paper-free solution for a more environmentally friendly college fair

"Students who attend the Coast to Coast Fair come prepared not only to absorb new information in regards to different universities, but also to ask thoughtful, specific questions that will assist in their college searches.
