2020-2021 College Fair Requests

***We are no longer accepting new fair requests for the 2020-2021 academic year***

MOACAC continues to have a vested interest in collaborating with high schools to assist in the planning of college fairs to best meet the needs of your students. To ensure consideration for the College Fair Calendar, please submit your request no later than March 1st, 2020. Someone from our organization will contact you to finalize the day and time as it relates to other area requests.

The criteria for being added to the MOACAC College Fair Calendar for 2020-2021 requires for your fair to meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • 100 or more colleges in attendance
  • 500 or more students/parents in attendance
  • 25 Mile Rule – if another school is having a fair within a 25 miles radius, try to combine the fairs

IMPORTANT NOTE: If your fair does not meet one of these criteria you are still welcome to host your fair. Please keep in mind though that it will not be listed on our calendar, resulting in possible conflicts with another fair’s date/time or limiting the number of colleges in attendance at your fair.

We strongly encourage fairs to last no longer than 90 minutes, with 2 hours being the max. We also urge you to consider collaborating with other area high schools that may have also hosted their own fair in the past. If you need help identifying these schools, please do not hesitate to contact us for suggestions.

Below we have listed the suggested week(s) for college fairs within each designated region of Missouri. College rep participation typically increases and travel expenses decrease, when we are more strategic with the scheduling of college fairs statewide by region. Please refer to the attached map to view the eight regions.
