Lead Retrieval App Now Available for All NACAC National College Fair Exhibitors
Beginning at the first 2020 Spring NCF in Pittsburgh, PA, all NACAC National College Fair exhibitors will be using the GoToCollegeFairs (GTCF) MobileScan App to capture student leads. Scanners are no longer available at NACAC college fairs. ALL onsite representatives must bring a compatible mobile device with the GTCF App to scan student barcodes. The scanning app will allow access only on the day of the fair. Please have your designated onsite representative download the app and set it up (fair and booth selection) before they arrive at the fair.
