Over 80 college fairs held throughout the state of Colorado!
Organized by the Colorado Council, these fairs are held every fall at area high schools or colleges.  These programs are geared toward high school students and their parents and attract thousands of participants who are eager to learn about college curricula, admission requirements, financial aid and more.  Attendance at our college fairs is free for parents, students, and educators.

This year's programs are scheduled for September, October, and the beginning of November. Non-member institutions and proprietary schools are charged a flat rate per week, regardless of the number of fairs actually attended during the week. The registration deadline for colleges and universities is August 19, 2019.

 

Students

We encourage you to register for a barcode for a Day/Night fair at  GoToCollegeFairs.com.  You will be able to take the barcode to the fair and have colleges scan the barcode for your information, instead of filling out info cards at every table. 

 

Bus Grant Application

Each year, the CCHS/CR gives high school counselors the opportunity to apply for up to $500 in grant money to assist with the direct cost associated with busing students to a CCHS/CR Day/Night Fair.  It is our hope that this money will make attendance possible for students who might not otherwise be exposed to all of these post-secondary options.  In order to be considered, please fill out the form below.

High Schools must have a current membership to Colorado Council to be eligible to host a Day/Night fair. If your membership expires before you host your fair, you will be responsible for renewing your membership before the date of your fair. Member High Schools are not guaranteed a day/night fair every Fall and fairs may rotate around your area or district to accommodate all member High Schools.

 

Day/Night Fair Attendance
Limited to Institutions of Higher Learning that offer an Associate's level degree, or higher, and are regionally accredited by one of the following agencies:
Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools (MSCHE), New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), or Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

 

Colleges: Purchase your Scanner for GoToCollegeFairs

Every hosting high school, as well as the additional invited schools to each fair, has been contacted by our GoToCollegeFairs Representative and highly encouraged to register their students for a GoToCollegeFairs barcode. Many counselors from different areas of the state have an interest in having their students create a barcode before attending the fair, so we would highly encourage you to purchase a GoToCollegeFairs Scanner.
