Each year, the Kishwaukee College Fair gives local students a chance to comparison shop post-high school options at colleges and universities by gathering information on academic programs, admissions requirements, and financial aid for several schools at a single location. At this year’s event, representatives from over 70 institutions, including colleges, universities, military programs, and trade schools, will be on hand to provide information materials and applications and answer questions. College shoppers will have access to representatives from Illinois schools as well as several out-of-state institutions from Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Kansas, plus more! The event is also recommended for Kishwaukee College students who are preparing to transfer to a four-year university.
One of the Kishwaukee College Fair’s most popular events is the financial aid presentation with a question and answer session. The financial aid presentation has been widely attended at the Kishwaukee College Fair in recent years, leaving standing room only in the auditorium. A second session has been added at 7:00 p.m. to accommodate a larger number of parents and students.
There will also be an information session on the Engineering-Mathematics-Science Academy (EMSA) for high school juniors, who are currently enrolled in pre-calculus, and their parents in Room A1273, the Conference Center Dining Room, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. High school students who are currently juniors and are interested in pursuing engineering or other math/science based majors participate in EMSA during their senior year in high school during which they take a series of college level calculus and physics and chemistry courses at Kishwaukee College to earn up to 26 hours of college credit while simultaneously finishing high school.
