Emerging Admission Professionals

NACAC created the Emerging Admission Professionals (EAP) initiative for those with 0-3 years of experience in college admission. EAP engages admission professionals through educational sessions and networking opportunities with seasoned professionals from NACAC and its local affiliates.

Educational sessions take place in conjunction with National College Fairs in the spring and fall and are free to attend for both NACAC members and nonmembers.
