CACRAO has partnered with Strive Scan to deliver a virtual platform for the Carolinas Educational Opportunity programs. While we would much prefer to be meeting with students and counselors in person, the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic have dictated a virtual format. We believe quality college information can now be accessible to all students in North and South Carolina while keeping admissions staff, students and schools safe.
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. In partnership with School Counselors, 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 counselor contacts & SC CHE
-Effective time spent recruiting; a typical in person state Ed-Op tour costs over $1,200 plus travel costs.
-Expanded reach; you can now recruit in both states without leaving your office.
