College Fair/College Visit
College Fair/College Visit Requirement:
To fulfill the college fair/college visit requirement, Crosby Scholars must speak with four college admission reps about their respective schools. Students typically fulfill this requirement by attending one college fair and submitting a college fair form during their sophomore year, junior year, or senior year; however, juniors and seniors may fulfill this requirement by visiting four college campuses. Details will be posted with changes and updates to this requirement as we learn more about changes to the fall semester. The full details of this requirement are always outlined in the Crosby Scholars Student Portal. This requirement must be fulfilled by early October of your senior year. Submitting one college fair form or one college visit form is required to verify your presence.
The most popular way to fulfill this requirement is to attend the local college fair, however the College Fair may look different this year. We will update you via email and in your student portal as we receive more details.
