The Office of Admissions is proud to partner with the Mississippi Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) to produce a virtual college fair experience for Mississippi students. These events will be statewide, open-registration events that allow students across Mississippi to have access and opportunities to meet with and explore affiliated colleges virtually. 

There is no charge to students or families to attend these virtual fairs, but students are required to register beforehand so that they can access the fair once it has begun. 

We look forward to meeting future Golden Eagles at the following virtual college fairs. Click here to register to virtually attend one of the fairs listed below.
