The FCPS College Fair and College Night events offer a venue for high school students/parents annually to meet with colleges/universities to share information and answer questions about their institutions. Approximately 400 colleges attend these events. The College Fair traditionally draws approximately 10,000 students and parents. College Night, held the following evening, attracts between 4,000 and 5,000 attendees. In addition to the open-fair setting, College Night features workshops related to the college admissions process.

Students and Parents:

Students are highly encouraged to register for these events at: Upon registration, each student will receive an Admittance Pass (individual bar code) which will allow the colleges to electronically scan the student’s information (instead of having the student fill out an information card for each college of interest on the night of the event). Students should print the Admittance Pass and bring it with them to both events.
