If you did not register last year, your college can sign up here. For FAQ please visit this link or email with any questions.

There is NO COST to colleges for the service at this fair. An annual subscription is available for colleges’ unlimited use elsewhere. Each college will have their 4 digit CEEB code printed on a flyer and displayed on your table.
