Prince George's County National College Fair
Tuesday, April 9, 2024
9:30 am–12:30 pm
Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex
Representatives from over 225 two-year and four-year colleges, nursing schools, business schools and trade schools will participate in the 2024 Prince George's County National College Fair which will be held on Tuesday, April 9 at the Prince George's Sports & Learning Complex. Officers and enlisted personnel from the various branches of the military services will also be on hand to discuss the military’s enlistment and education programs such as R.O.T.C., the military academies and the GI Bill.
The College Fair, sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), is a timesaving opportunity for students and parents to gather a lot of information in one day. College admissions representatives will be on hand to answer key questions ranging from acceptance policies to student–faculty ratio. In addition to asking questions, students and parents will be able to set up college interviews, pick up literature and learn about the various financial aid programs available.
Review the list of participating colleges and make a list of the booths you’d like to visit. To make the best use of your time at the Fair, visit nacacattend.org to register for a personal bar code. When you visit the college booths, the reps will scan your bar code, automatically accessing your information. This will leave you more time to engage in one-on-one conversation. You can also use the computers provided at the convention site, but be aware that lines may be long at the registration tables. Your goal is to have as much time as possible to talk with the reps at their booths.
Read through this issue of College Fair Guide. There are many articles, charts, useful hints and items of information which will be helpful to you. The more prepared you are for the College Fair, the more you’ll get out of it.
