We all know what traditional college fairs are like: huge venues hosting tons of colleges, universities and military services where students and families can gather information, brochures, and lots of first impressions. But is that all there is to the admissions process?
Obviously, determining where you want to go is important. Equally essential is learning how to get in!
We’re thrilled to announce the first Greater Rochester Getting-into-College Fair. How is this free event different from a conventional college fair? Instead of campus reps, you’ll meet amazing local experts with answers about every aspect of college admissions:
- Independent college consultants
- SAT & ACT test prep professionals
- FAFSA and student loans specialists
- College student success coaches
- College savings and 529 advisors
- NYS Excelsior and scholarship experts
The experts at this fair will offer guidance and insights for high school students of all ages along with parents and educators. Look forward to presentations on key admissions topics. Here is what you can expect at the Perinton Community Center on November 3, 2022:
5:10 – New York State 529 Plans (Melissa Kapsiak)
5:30 – How FAFSA Gets You Money (Liane Crane)
