Wayne County College Access Network (WCCAN) will host a free virtual college, career and financial aid fair on Thursday, March 11, 2021, from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Students will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from more than 30 colleges and vocational training schools. Information about grants, loans, FAFSA, and scholarships will be available at a financial aid booth.
Whether students are preparing for college or trade school, WCCAN’s Virtual College and Career Fair will help prepare them for their future. Registered students will have the option to chat one-on-one with representatives from various colleges and trade schools in Michigan and around the world.
Students will be matched with schools that fit their preferences, and can also search using filters to find different opportunities. Each college or trade school will have a virtual booth that allows students to view programs, take a virtual tour, view photos, find out how to apply, and connect with admissions counselors that can answer questions.
Students can save programs to their accounts and log back in to view them. They can also view conversation logs if they had chatted with advisors. This event will provide students with an opportunity to explore many exciting possibilities for their future while getting the information that they need to make their decisions from the comfort of their own home.
The Wayne County College Access Network will mobilize local and regional organizations and resources to:
Provide more effective educational support to all learners and create a college-going culture in all out- Wayne county schools.
Lower systematic barriers preventing students from pursuing education beyond high school.
Improve coordination of higher education access services, particularly to those who come from low-income families or are first in their families seeking post-secondary attainment.
