Frequently Asked Questions
How does a virtual college fair work?
Admissions representatives will create virtual timeslots for their booths, when they will host Q&A sessions or be available to talk and chat with students and parents using the Zoom technology platform. Each attendee can create a unique schedule to visit the Zoom rooms of the institutions they are most interested in.
Additionally, the Coalition behind the #CollegeForAll Fair will host webinars on important topics relevant to the college admissions process.
What does it mean to feature colleges and universities “committed to access and equity”?
The #CollegeForAll Fair will be unique, in that the event will only feature 4-year colleges and universities who have demonstrated a commitment to supporting students who will be the first in their family to attend college (also referred to as “first generation students”) and those from low-income households.
You can read more about our criteria for establishing which institutions qualify for the Fair here.
Can any college or university sign up for a booth at the Fair?
No. Colleges and universities may have a presence at the #CollegeForAll Fair by invitation only.
Why is the Fair spread out over multiple days?
We understand young people are busy these days, between jobs, athletics, summer programs, internships, helping with their families, and so much more. We’ve created this schedule so that even if you have a conflict on one day of the Fair, you can still participate throughout the Fair week.
Does attending the Fair cost anything?
Nope. The #CollegeForAll Fair is free and open to any interested student or parent in the U.S.
The #CollegeForAll Fair is organized and supported by
these youth-serving organizations around the country.
