With so many high school students and families facing uncertainty this year, UCAN is putting their efforts behind a virtual platform to educate and inform students about the college search and admissions process.

They will have an opportunity to view on-demand expert presentations on topics like College Success During the COVID Crisis, 1st Gen Students-Resources for Success, Success Student Athletes, Financial Aid 101, etc., as well as viewing two (2) live presentations on community college transfer programs and ROTC opportunities offered at HBCUs during the fair.

The program also includes excellent online school counselor resources to assist students during their college selection process.  Students and parents are encouraged to click on the newly expanded College Planning Resources that provide families a Toolkit to assist them as they navigate through the college planning process.

Exploring college options is an important function of a college fair.  The HBCU 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.

You must register to attend at www.ucangotocollege.org. The Virtual College Fair begins Thursday, February 18 and continues through Saturday, February 20.
