Iowa ACAC 2020-2021 College Day/College Night Registration Update

Iowa ACAC CD/CN Committee and Executive Board has decided to not host any in-person sponsored fairs this fall. After monitoring schools' Return-to-Learn plans and the recent increase in cases, we feel that it isn’t in the best interest of everyone’s health and safety.

The CD/CN Committee is looking into virtual options to replace the in person fairs. Thank you for your patience as we try to find a safe and effective way to replace college fairs this fall.

Watch for listserv messages and our Facebook page for updates regarding costs, registration procedures, etc.

In-State Institutions

2-5 fairs - $500
More than five (5) fairs - $550

Out-of-State Institutions
2-5 fairs - $650
More than 5 fairs - $750
One (1) fair - $250 (for in-state or out-of-state)

Important Reminders Regarding College Day/College Night Registration and Programs:

  • The person who submits the online registration form is considered the Key Contact. The Key Contact is responsible for updating all staff membership information on the web site.

  • Site hosts will email all information to the person who is listed as the attending representative. If the attending representative transitions from your office between now and fall, it is the Key Contact's responsibility to unlink him/her from your online organizational profile and inform us at [email protected], so we can delete the name.

  • Complete the form for the FULL YEAR, not just fall.

  • Institutions/organizations who sign up for our fairs receive an institutional membership as part of the package. You do NOT have to submit a separate membership form. Please make sure any new staff members are aware of this, too, so they don’t unnecessarily sign up for membership.

  • Please review your boxes checked for fairs before submitting your form, so you know that you marked the fairs you should have marked. This will avoid showing up at a fair that isn't expecting you, or missing a fair that was.

  • As has always been the case, there is a copy of the registration submission housed under the online profile of the person who submits the form.

  • Institutions may only participate in programs originally contracted to attend. No exceptions will be made.

  • No provisions will be made for uninvited or unanticipated representatives.

  • Each institution must retain a copy of the signed contract and schedule for each representative who will represent the institution.

  • It is expected that all representatives will know and abide by the College Day/College Night Standards of Conduct for Representatives.

Iowa ACAC is switching to StriveScan for college fair scanning.

Iowa ACAC is pleased to announce we have partnered with StriveScan to bring their student barcode scanning technology to our college fairs starting this fall. StriveScan will make the experience more efficient and productive for students and colleges, plus provide Iowa ACAC and the fair organizers with valuable data about the events.

StriveScan is used at college fairs around the country, including by other NACAC affiliates including Illinois, Missouri, Great Plains, Rocky Mountain, Pacific Northwest, Western, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Hawaii ACACs, plus the Colleges That Change Lives, Jesuit Excellence Tour, Montana Post Secondary Educational Opportunities Council, and Linden Tours. More than 2,000 colleges have used StriveScan at hundreds of college fairs around the country and in 68 different countries.

More information is available under StriveScan Barcode Scanning.
