College Fairs

A free program to the public since 1972, the WACAC College Fairs and NACAC College Fairs allow students to interact with admission representatives from a wide range of postsecondary institutions. They have the opportunity to discuss course offerings, admission and financial aid requirements, college life, and other information pertinent to the college selection process. WACAC College Fairs take place in conjunction with NACAC College Fairs in Northern California, Southern California and Nevada. NACAC College Fairs are also held throughout the United States.

WACAC Counselor College Fairs

Held in conjunction with our Share, Learn and Connect Series, these College Fairs are for counselors only. No students will be in attendance. Counselors will have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with admissions professionals during these events.
