GoToCollegeFairs.com Registration

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.

College fairs start September 13th, so register soon!

Counselors & Career Coaches

First of all, thank you for all that you do to help students.  We are coming off a challenging year to say the least and we are so excited to see you and your students this fall!  If you haven't already, register for our Articulation Workshop (registration link also on your right) to hear updates from all ArkACRAO member schools.  You'll receive 3 hours of Professional Development Units as well!

Also, share the article to the left 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!

ArkACRAO wants to keep you, your students, and college representatives safe while still providing opportunities for your students.  As we all continue to monitor the number of new Covid cases in the state, know that we are here to help you make any last minute adjustments as needed.  Please reach out to Mary Whiting or Joey Hughes with your concerns regarding college fairs.
