The event also includes workshops on such topics as financial aid, writing application essays, and comparing college options. Some secondary schools arrange transportation to the fair for their students. Students and parents are welcome at any time. The National College Fair is free and open to the public.

National College Fairs are offered annually at locations throughout the country, sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and regional associations like MACAC.

Register Students for Lead Retrieval

The 2013 Minnesota National College Fair will utilize Lead Retrieval technology. This technology allows student to create a bar code of their information that will then be scanned by colleges at the fair.

Students will no longer have to fill out interest cards for each college, maximizing their time in conversation with college representatives.

In order for this to run as smoothly as possible students are highly encouraged to create their bar code prior to arrival at the fair.

Register students individually

Students can register as individuals by September 24 at gotocollegefairs.com

Register all students

Schools can register all students by September 9 by submitting their data online.
