We know this year is different in so many ways for our students and families and this will also include how Central Texas schools offer college fairs. After discussing options with our university partners, taking into consideration the large number of individuals who attend college fairs and university travel restrictions, all Central Texas schools are working with the Texas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (TACRAO) to host virtual college fairs. While Leander ISD will continually share up-to-date information regarding virtual college fairs, these events are planned, hosted and conducted by TACRAO. To help with your planning, the Central Texas schedule is listed below and students and family members may attend any virtual fair that works best for their schedule. 

Monday to Friday Sept. 28 to Oct. 2

9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

Saturday Oct. 3

12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

While the TACRAO virtual college fair website is still being updated, students and family members may visit this site now to pre-register and watch a short video about what to expect at the TACRAO virtual college fair. 

National Virtual College Fairs

Another great virtual college fair option is to attend one of the four National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) virtual college fairs. As stated in the name, these are national fairs and the university participation may include schools that do not typically travel to Texas to recruit students. The NACAC virtual college fairs will be held on the following dates and times*:
