The Iowa Quad City College Program will host its annual college fair on Columbus Day, Monday, October 13, 2014, from 5-7:30 p.m. in the Rogalski Center.
The fair allows local families to meet representatives from colleges and universities located throughout the United States, and to speak with them about admissions information and scholarship opportunities. Typically about 100 colleges and universities are in attendance each year.
The program is organized by local guidance counselors from Assumption, Bettendorf, Central, North, North Scott, Pleasant Valley, and West high schools, along with Scott Community College and St. Ambrose University.
Representatives from ICAN (Iowa College Access Network), the local division of Dollars for Scholars and the Transition Advisory Board of the Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency will also be in attendance. Last year's fair drew approximately 1,000 visitors.
In addition to your traditional recruitment materials, please bring any information you have pertaining to your services for students with disabilities. The local Transition Advisory Board will be hosting a workshop in conjunction with the college fair addressing issues for students with disabilities considering post-secondary education.
The Students with Disabilities Workshop will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Rogalski Center, 2nd Floor, Gottlieb Conference Center.
A number of students with disabilities are expected to visit the college fair and may want information about your services. If you have any questions about the workshop please contact Jane Rock at Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency at 563/344-6288
