Please share this information with your Admissions and/or Recruitment Staff - Deadline to Register for Spring 2021 Transfer Fairs, January 28th

The High School Relations Committee is happy to announce the Spring 2021 TACRAO Transfer Fair Series Dates.  GTCF utilized the holiday break to provide some new and additional functionality.  With that being said, the committee made a very hard decision to condense (and expand at the same time) the traditional two TACRAO Weeks into one, February 1 - 4, 2021, and add additional dates throughout the month of February and March.  The dates for the Spring TACRAO Transfer Series will be the following:

Spring TACRAO Transfer Week (details for theses fairs to be posted on the TACARO Website)
                                Monday, February 1                        11am - 1:30pm
                                Tuesday, February 2                        11am - 1:30pm
                                Wednesday, February 3                 4:30pm - 7:00pm

HSR is currently working with our 2-year partners and will post the schedule of Host institutions in the coming week - please remember that we now have the ability for any 2-year institution to host and participate in Spring Fairs.  If you are a 2-year institution and would like to participate, please reach out to your HSR Regional Coordinators.

Here are some questions you may have:

What is the deadline to register our college/university for the Spring Transfer Fairs?
Deadline to register for the Spring Transfer Fair Series is January 28th at 4pm CST.

Will the Spring Transfer Fairs have a booth fee?
While HSR is dedicated to trying to minimize your cost, the booth for all 10 Transfer Dates will cost $150.  So think about it like this - if your institutions participates in all 10 events - that is only $15 per event or if your institution "makes" contact with 25 transfer students across all 10 events, that is $6.00 per lead (based on the cost of the fairs only).

Has the reservation/registration process changed?
Yes, there is now a site specific for college and university reps to create, manage, and maintain their university booth.
