The registration process for a student is simple and makes the college fair experience much more efficient and enjoyable. No need to complete prospect cards at each college table. This allows your fairs to go green! Each student will fill out a registration form online and provide their information only once, elaborating on their academic interests and more. This increases face-to-face time for both the admissions representative and the student.
We suggest posting the flyers in the school hallways. You can also consider using the registration as a homework assignment, where the student presents their barcode as completion of the assignment. Post the registration information in the school’s newsletter and on the website. Finally, you may mention the registration process during a class assembly or during student orientation.
Once a student has created a profile (registered for a fair) you have the ability to select the last option from your dashboard “Register students for another fair” and then, after selecting each student you wish to register, follow the few simple steps to complete the registration. No need to complete a new registration form.
From your counselor account, you have the ability to either bulk or individually print the students’ barcodes. Each student will also receive an email reminder with their barcode attached, two days prior to the fair.
Yes, a student can use their smartphone to access the www.gotocollegefairs.com webpage to register. We suggest a paper copy of the barcode, as all colleges may not have the ability to scan the barcode from a mobile device.
It is always recommended that a student registers prior to attending a college fair. However as a safety net, if your school is hosting an event, you can set up a few computers and printers to offer onsite registration on the day of the event. Not all fairs will offer onsite registration. If they do, the lines may be long.
