At virtual college fairs, students can learn about hundreds of colleges and explore their options, all from the convenience of their home. Admissions representatives provide up-to-date information on their programs and share the latest policies regarding standardized testing, application deadlines, financial aid, and more.
Students can log in using their phone or computer to attend college information sessions, ask questions, and schedule a time to meet one-on-one with an admissions representative. As best as possible, these fairs replicate much of the experience of in-person college fairs.
The National Association of College Admission Counseling (NACAC) is offering four virtual college fairs this fall, to be held on Sept. 13, Oct. 12, Oct. 18, and Nov. 8. Students and their parents can learn about more than 600 colleges and universities through these events. Registration begins in mid-August at virtualcollegefairs.org. NACAC encourages families to attend their free virtual college fairs as often as they like.
NACAC maintains the high standards that foster ethical and social responsibility in college admission, college counseling, college fairs, education, and more. International College Counselors is a proud member of NACAC.
