2020 National College Fair Draws Thousands of Students and Parents to Consider Numerous College Choices

Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) experienced another successful National College Fair last Sunday at the DoubleTree by Hilton Miami Airport Hotel & Convention Center. More than 10,000 students and parents participated in the four-hour event where representatives from 200 colleges and universities provided answers to questions regarding admissions, financial aid, housing, testing requirements and more.

“This is a wonderful and beneficial opportunity for our students to get information and learn about the variety of academic choices that are available to them,” said School Board Chair Perla Tabares Hantman, who has co-chaired Miami-Dade’s College Fair for more than two decades.

As in previous years, students were able to pre-register to obtain an electronic ID permitting them to request valuable information from the multiple learning institutions.
The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and M-DCPS sponsored the free event.
