Our monthly virtual college fairs are designed for you to learn about us at your own pace. The virtual fairs take place on the 14th of each month, September through December, and consist of a 15-minute webinar on a topic in college admission followed by a one-hour college fair where you can visit as many of our institutions as you’d like.

Each college will be represented by an admission officer and when available a current student or alumnus. This is a great way to continue learning about us as you navigate your college search.

You only need to register once! Upon submission of this form, you will receive a reminder email before each monthly college fair with the Zoom links to access the main webinar and each college’s room.

We look forward to seeing you at the virtual fair!
