NACAC holds college fairs each fall and spring semester.

General NACAC College Fairs, held in both the fall and spring, are an opportunity for students and parents to connect with admission representatives from colleges and universities across the globe.

NACAC Performing & Visual Arts Fairs, held only in the fall, are designed for students interested in pursuing undergraduate and/or graduate study in the areas of music, dance, theater, visual arts, graphic design, and other related disciplines. Attendees learn about educational opportunities, admission and financial aid requirements, portfolio days, auditions, and much more by visiting with admission representatives from college and university art programs, conservatories, festivals and other educational institutions with specialized programs in the visual and performing arts.

NACAC and the 2016 Local Arrangements Committee seek volunteers to assist with the many activities onsite at the National Conference in Columbus, Ohio, September 22 – 24. Please complete the Volunteer Form now if you are registered for the conference and would like to volunteer.
