National College Fair coming to Reliant Center

HISD students will have the opportunity to meet with admissions representatives from nearly 260 colleges and universities at the Houston National College Fair on Thursday, April 12.

The event, which is organized by the National Association for College Admission Counseling, will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., and 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at Reliant Center (One Reliant Park, Houston, TX 77054). It will provide information about national and international schools, public and private universities, two-year and four-year programs, admissions requirements, and financial aid.

Students at all grade levels are encouraged to attend the evening session with their parents. Some HISD schools will also be providing transportation for 11th-grade students who would like to attend the National College Fair during the school day. High school juniors will need to check with their college access coordinator to find out whether their school is offering bus transportation to the event.

All interested students can pre-register for the event online at By registering in advance, students can print out a bar-coded confirmation letter to be used on-site at the fair as an electronic form of identification, eliminating the need to fill out information cards at each booth.
