More than 600 colleges and universities will be online to talk with high school juniors and seniors on each of these fair dates: Sept. 13, Oct. 12, Oct. 18, and Nov. 8.

Your Feedback is Valued

We're excited about the launch of NACAC Virtual College Fairs and the dynamic way they connect counselors, students, and families with college around the world. 

Counselors like you will be the first participants on the new platform. Please let us know about your experience. Your feedback will help us continue to refine the virtual fairs before opening to students in the fall.

Some features are designed to provide extra support for students who are unsure how, when, or why to start their college search. NACAC Meet-Ups provide information (in English and Spanish) on how to find their best college fit, how to pay for college, and more. Plus, students can use chat to talk with a college counseling expert from among NACAC's members.




NACAC Virtual College Fairs are offered by the National Association for College Admission Counseling, a nonprofit organization representing more than 14,000 counseling and admission professionals worldwide since 1937. NACAC and its members are dedicated to ethical and inclusive service to students as they make choices about their higher education future.
