Summer Institute

2021 Summer Institute



The Ohio Association for College Admissions Counseling (OACAC) is pleased to host this year’s Summer Institute (SI) through StriveScan, from the comfort of your home or office! This 1.5 day conference brings together new admissions professionals with three years of experience or less to foster a deeper understanding of the interactions between admissions counselors and high school counselors, as well as expert insight into current trends in the profession. The connections you make at SI will last throughout your career and will prove valuable during your time as a road warrior.

Summer Institute is remaining virtual this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and colleges across the state meeting the needs of all institutions across the state – creating a place where all new professionals can participate regardless of work environment, and opportunity to travel for professional development.

When: August 10 & 11, 2021, hosted in partnership with StriveScan

$55 for OACAC members through July 30, 2021
$65 for OACAC members July 31 – August 10, 2021
