California College Fairs

 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU)  Recruitment Fairs

The UCAN Black College Recruitment Fairs are held in the Fall each year. Our most recent fairs in September 2017 drew more than 60,000 students and parents serving the cities of Sacramento, San Francisco, Fairfield, Stockton, and the Inland Empire (San Bernardino, Moreno Valley, Rialto, Fontana and Riverside Unified School Districts). The Fairs were an overwhelming success with many students receiving “on-the-spot” admissions and scholarship offers.
