The 2017 New Jersey National College Fair will be held at the Meadowlands Exposition Center
Description:

Representatives from approximately 400 two-year and four-year colleges, nursing schools, business schools and trade schools will participate in the 2017 New Jersey National College Fair which will be held on Wednesday, April 26th and Thursday, April 27th at the Meadowlands Exposition Center at Harmon Meadows.

Officers and enlisted personnel from the various branches of the military services will also be on hand to discuss the military's enlistment and education programs such as R.O.T.C., the military academies, and the GI Bill.

The College Fair, sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), is a timesaving opportunity for students and parents to gather a lot of information in one day. College admissions representatives will be on hand to answer key questions ranging from acceptance policies to student-faculty ratio.

In addition to asking questions, students and parents will be able to set up college interviews, pick up literature and learn about the various financial aid programs available. Schedule time to attend these sessions with your parents in addition to visiting college reps.

In addition to asking questions, students and parents will be able to set up college interviews, pick up literature and learn about the various financial aid programs available. You may also want to check the list of workshops. Schedule time to attend these sessions with your parents in addition to visiting college reps.

Review the list of participating colleges below and make a list of the booths you’d like to visit. To make the best use of your time at the Fair you can visit www.gotomyncf.com to register for a personal bar code. When you visit the college booths, the reps will scan your bar code, automatically accessing your information. This will leave you more time to engage in one-on-one conversation.

You can also use the computers provided at the convention site, but be aware that lines may be long at the registration tables.

Another option to expedite your request for college information is to complete the red and white postcards in this publication and leave them with the admissions reps at their tables. Whichever option you choose, your goal is to have as much time as possible to talk with the reps at their booths.

9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

For those students who wish to enroll in a college or university, questions involving majors, size of school, costs, and types of extracurricular activities and social life need to be asked and answered.

Students and parents should read as much as possible about the colleges and universities in which they are interested before attending a program like this. If possible, you should get a viewbook or catalog on these institutions ahead of time, or visit the school's Web site and familiarize yourself with the facts that interest you. College representatives are always more eager to discuss their institution with students who seem genuinely interested, and who are somewhat knowledgeable about the school.

Visit first the tables of the colleges in which you are primarily interested. If possible select at least six colleges or schools in which you are definitely interested before coming to the College Fair. Plan on visiting with these representatives first. If there is much of a line before a particular school, go to another table and return at a later time. The representatives will be there throughout the times posted for the Fair and you might find that visiting with them when they are not busy will be better for you because they will be able to answer your questions more fully.

A college fair is a good time to expand your knowledge about colleges and/or careers, in general. The representatives of the various institutions come from a variety of experiences and backgrounds, and they will be very pleased to answer any questions you have. You may even find that there will be other institutions at the program that may better serve your needs than the ones you were originally considering. Therefore, take advantage of the opportunity to investigate other institutions.

If you think you cannot afford a college education, or afford the college of your choice, you could be very pleasantly surprised. Too many families are automatically limiting their college selection, or whether to even attend college, simply by looking at tuition and room and board costs. Very few families can afford the cost of higher education without the availability of some type of financial assistance. Contrary to some public opinion, there are many opportunities to get financial assistance, even for upper-middle-income families. College selection should not be limited to those schools a family may mistakenly think they can afford.

This College Fair is not meant to be the last step in your search for the college or university that will give you all that you want and need in an education. It is most often considered to be one of the first steps in your search process. After you accumulate the information you receive at the program, you should sit down, read, and digest the many pamphlets you have received. After that, narrow your choices to five or six institutions in which you are interested and visit them. Spend as much time on these campuses as you can. Have an interview in the admissions office; talk to students, faculty and alumni as much as possible; and if possible, arrange a campus tour, sit in on classes, and spend a weekend.

Choosing a college should not be a haphazard process. Some decisions on college selection are made for very odd reasons. They should not be. Remember, the college in which you decide to enroll should, and will, have a profound impact on the rest of your life.

Parents are encouraged to bring younger students - middle and junior high-school students - to the College Fair to begin early planning. A counseling center will be available to answer questions and to assist in the planning process.
