2017 Fall National and PVA College Fairs

The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) sponsors the following National, and Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs. Additional information can be found at Students can pre-register for the college fairs at By doing so, students and parents will receive a personalized barcode with their contact and academic information that they can print and bring to the fairs. When colleges and universities scan their barcode, they retrieve the information and are able to follow up with students after the fair. This saves the time of filling out individual information cards, thus allowing students to visit more booths during the fair.
