High School Students Everywhere Are Invited to Attend the
NACAC Virtual College Fair on Sunday, Sept. 13

One Day. Hundreds of Colleges. Your Choice!

  

Arlington, VA (September 8, 2020) – The National Association for College Admission Counseling hosts its first virtual college fair for students on Sunday, Sept. 13 from 12 - 8 p.m. ET at virtualcollegefairs.org.

High school juniors and seniors everywhere are invited to sign up and start exploring.

On the date of the fair, more than 600 colleges will offer live and interactive Zoom sessions and other opportunities to connect. Students can log in, drop in, ask questions, and explore their college options. It’s one day with hundreds of colleges, and it’s free.

Because there are so many colleges and Zoom sessions to choose from, students are encouraged to sign up and look around several days before the fair date. A list of the Sept. 13 exhibiting colleges is searchable online and also available as a PDF handout.

For an overview of what they can do and find at the NACAC Virtual College Fair, students can watch this short video. A Quick Start Guide for Students PDF is available as well.

During the fair, students and families can also choose to attend a 30-minute NACAC Meet-Up to learn about financial aid, applying to college, and more. In addition, a chat button will connect students to volunteers from NACAC's dedicated membership ― they're available to offer college advice and to answer questions.

“High school juniors and seniors have had so many disruptions in their lives. It's important to let them know that making plans for the future is still important and college is still important,” said Angel B. Pérez, chief executive officer of NACAC. “These virtual college fairs are a reminder to keep pursuing their college dreams." 

Students may attend NACAC Virtual College Fairs as often as they like, and parents are invited too. Sign up and register at virtualcollegefairs.org.

NACAC is grateful for promotional support from Common App. The fairs are powered by VisitDays.
