The College & Career Fair is your opportunity to “window shop” for a college or university. We invite over 600 institutions - public, private, technical, apprenticeship programs and training institutions, both 2 and 4 year programs as well as various support agencies.
In addition to the fair we will be conducting workshops to make you better informed.
Financial Aid (How to Get Started)
Scholarships (How to Find Them)
College Admissions Process.
These one hour workshops will be held from 2 pm til 5 pm on Sunday and the fair is from 1 pm til 5 pm so there is adequate time to get lots of good information.
It is a time for both juniors and seniors to explore college options. You might want to consider printing self-stick labels with your name, address, contact information (phone, cell, email address) and graduation date to stick on college information cards. Bring a notepad and pen so you are ready to keep track of important information.
Many of the schools attending are WUE eligible. WUE (pronounced “woo-wee”) is the Western Undergraduate Exchange, a program of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). Through WUE, students in western states may enroll in more than 140 two-year and four-year college institutions at a reduced tuition level: 150 percent of the institution's regular resident tuition. WICHE member states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.
Have some questions ready. Parents remember, the questions your student has may be totally different from questions you may have and BOTH are important. It is important that you explore with your student, not for them. Student, remember you will be living there, not just attending school. Some examples are:
What are the employment opportunities on or off campus?
How are housing assignments made? Are the residence halls co-ed?
What kind of social activities are available on campus?
How do you award student aid?
Do they offer your intended major?
What are admission requirements?
What kind of “services” are available on campus – i.e. Career Center, Health Center, Computer labs, Shuttles, Fitness Center
