Seattle College Fair set for Nov. 8 and 9

The Seattle National College Fair will be held on Friday, November 8 at the Washington State Convention Center & Trade Center in Seattle, from 9 a.m. until noon and Saturday, November 9 from noon until 4 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public.

As the process of applying to and selecting a college becomes more and more competitive and complex, students and parents need all the help and information they can get. Attending a college fair is the best way to gather information about colleges and universities.

The Fair program provides valuable resources for students and parents attempting to navigate the college-admission process.

The fair allows students and parents to meet one-on-one with admission representatives from a wide range of national and international, public and private, two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Participants will learn about admission requirements, financial aid, course offerings, and campus environment, as well as other information pertinent to the college-selection process.

At the fair’s counseling center, students and parents can discuss their individual needs with college experts.

Now in its 41st year, the National College Fair program annually helps more than 675,000 students and families nationwide explore their options for higher education.

In addition to the National College Fairs program, NACAC also holds Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs.
