Save Time at the SM College Clinic – Register at GoToCollegeFairs.com

Before you attend the Shawnee Mission College Clinic, you are encouraged to pre-register your personal contact information at gotocollegefairs.com.  Click on the orange “register now” button, complete the information survey, then print the personalized bar code (or keep it on your smart phone) and bring it to the SM College Clinic.

If you aren’t familiar with this service, a national company called College Fair Automation provides this data collection service which helps both students and participating colleges.

Students, here’s some time saving reasons to sign up on gotocollegefairs.com
1. Provide information one time through a simple, online registration page…instead of dozens of times on paper at college fairs.
2. Personal information will only be passed on to colleges that you visit at the SM College Clinic and allow your bar code to be scanned.
3. Personal contact information is shared accurately and securely.  (No one will have to figure out your handwriting!)
4. Increase face-to-face time with college representatives.  You will have more time to ask questions and have a conversation with college representatives.
5. The service is free.

More information for high school students on the GoToCollegeFairs 2015 Student Flyer.

More information for high school counselors on the GoToCollegeFair Counselor Student Flyer 2015.

Colleges that participate in gotocollegefairs.com will have scanners on hand which allow representatives to receive data through an individual bar code that each student brings with them to the fair.

College Fair Automation has been around for a few years now and is becoming more popular each year.  College representatives are getting more used to this type of information delivery.  Not all colleges participate in this service, but we expect that a majority of schools will have scanners available and in use at the Shawnee Mission College Clinic.

The more students who pre-register at gotocollegefairs.com and bring their bar code to the Shawnee Mission College Clinic, the more useful this system will be for everyone involved.

Make Plans to Attend Largest College Fair in Kansas City Area

The Shawnee Mission College Clinic is an opportunity for college representatives from throughout the country and high school students from throughout the Kansas City area to come together in one place.
