As the process of applying to and selecting a college becomes more and more competitive and complex, students and parents need all the help and information they can get. Attending a college fair is the best way to gather information about colleges and universities. The national college fair program provides valuable resources for students and parents attempting to navigate the college-admission process.

The fair allows students and parents to meet one-on-one with admission representatives from a wide range of national and international, public and private, two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Participants will learn about admission requirements, financial aid, course offerings, and campus environment, as well as other information pertinent to the college-selection process. At the fair’s counseling center, students and parents can discuss their individual needs with college experts.

“The resources and opportunities that the National College Fairs provide for students and their families are invaluable,” said Greg Ferguson, NACAC Director of National College Fairs Programs and Services, “and admission professionals have been delighted by the caliber of students attending our programs.”

Now in its 39th year, the National College Fair program annually helps more than 500,000 students and families nationwide explore their options for higher education, making it one of the most visible college recruitment tools in the country.  In addition to the National College Fairs program, NACAC also holds Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs. These fairs are held during the fall and are designed to serve students with particular interest in the fine arts. NACAC currently sponsors National College Fairs and Performing and Visual Arts College fairs in 74 locations across the country.  For a complete schedule, visit

Students can now register prior to attending these events.  This makes navigating the fair and collecting information from multiple colleges and universities much easier for students.  By registering, students can print a bar coded confirmation to be used on-site at the fair as an electronic ID.  No more filling out information cards!
