With so many high school students and families facing uncertainty this fall, UCAN is putting their efforts behind virtual to educate and inform our community about the college search process.  Covering topics like; College Success During the COVID Crisis, 1st Gen Students-Resources for Success, Success Student Athletes, Financial Aid 101, etc., the virtual college fair provides expert presentations which can be viewed live or on demand.

The program also includes excellent online school counselor resources to assist students during their college selection process.  All webinars will be available on-demand after the fair.

Exploring college options is an important function of a college fair.  The Historically Black College and University virtual college fair provides search filters like geographic region, campus size, campus setting, and even majors offered to allow students and families to find a good fit, all from the comfort and convenience of home.
