Learn More About College Options at the Free Houston National College Fair
The Houston National College Fair will be held on Thursday, April 11 at the Reliant Center in Houston, TX from 12:30pm-2:30pm and 6:00pm-8:00pm.
Sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and hosted by the Texas for College Admission Counseling (TACAC), this event is free and open to the public.
As the process of applying to and selecting a college becomes more and more competitive and complex, students and parents need all the help and information they can get. Attending a college fair is the best way to gather information about colleges and universities. The National College Fair program provides valuable resources for students and parents attempting to navigate the college-admission process.
The fair allows students and parents, veterans and transfer students to meet one-on-one with admission representatives from a wide range of national and international, public and private, two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Participants will learn about admission requirements, financial aid, course offerings, and campus environment, as well as other information pertinent to the college-selection process. At the fair’s counseling center, students and parents can discuss their individual needs with college experts.
"The resources and opportunities that the National College Fairs provide for students and their families are invaluable," said Greg Ferguson, NACAC Director of National College Fairs Programs and Services, "and admission professionals have been delighted by the caliber of students attending our programs."
Students are encouraged to register prior to attending the event. Register online at www.gotomyncf.com
