     The Black College Expo has attracted more than 15,000 college hopefuls and millennials since its inception and is growing every year. One of the greatest features offered is the opportunity for students to be accepted to college “On-The-Spot.” This is ideal as it eliminates the guesswork, grueling and costly process of filling out multiple applications with expensive fees then enduring that agonizing wait with bated breath for word of acceptance to come. The Expo also offers funding resource options which include scholarships, grants and other special incentives. In short, this single one-day event is jam packed with information, excitement, networking opportunities, chance to meet and make new friends with similar goals and ideals while enjoying top entertainment.


     For college bound high school students who still have a year or two to graduate; now is the time to get your transcripts organized, the school activities that you participate in and recommendations from your teachers, church and community leaders so you can attend a Black College Expo in your town and take full advantage of it.
