GoToCollegeFairs.com Registration and 2021 College Fairs

Again this year, all ArkACRAO college fairs encourage students to register at GoToCollegeFairs.com.  This is the easiest and fastest way to share information with multiple schools in the college selection process.  Students will create an account and select a fair to attend.  As individual college fairs are not listed, the student should select "All Arkansas High School College Fairs" in Step 2.

Registration Example

Complete the rest of the registration with your academic interests and features you are wanting in a college.  This information will be sent to the student in the form of a barcode via email or text.  At the college fair, students then ask colleges they are interested in to scan the barcode, sharing their contact information instead of filling out multiple inquiry cards at each table.

Counselors and Career Coachesthank you for all that you do to help students.  Please share this article with your students about registering for college fairs this fall.  It's an easy to share their information with lots of schools and allow for better conversations during the fair instead of spending all of their time filling out card after card.  Even better, you can track their engagement with colleges using your GoToCollegefairs.com Counselor Dashboard!

Please reach out to Mary Whiting or Joey Hughes with your concerns regarding college fairs.  Other ArkACRAO concerns can be sent to [email protected].  We want to support you in serving your students.

It Was Great To See You!

After a year of virtual events and social distancing, it was wonderful to reconnect secondary-school and post-secondary school professionals during our annual Articulation Workshop!  The admissions staff at UA - Little Rock were wonderful and the venue allowed us to space out as we learned the latest news from colleges across the state.  We want to give them a BIG "thank you" for their contributions.

If you didn't get a copy of your 2021-2022 QuickBook, it's available digitally or you can request a booklet(s) to be mailed to you by emailing [email protected].  Professional Development certificates have been released via email as everyone had their hands full of great materials to take back to your classrooms and students.

Thank you for joining us online and in-person!
