Representatives from nearly 200 colleges and universities will be at the 2019 Miami National College Fair on Sunday, Feb. 24, to meet with students and parents on subjects such as financial aid, college planning, admission and testing requirements.
The fair, which has free admission, will be held from noon to 4 p.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Miami Airport & Convention Center, 777 NW 72 Ave. Parking is $5 (cash only).
Select informational sessions will be presented in Spanish and Haitian-Creole. A Counseling Center also will be available to allow students and their parents the opportunity to talk with trained professionals regarding college preparation, admissions and scholarships.
