The Iowa ACAC College Day/College Night program provides a supportive environment for students to get information and appropriate counseling that is helpful in their college selection process. Participation in the program is limited to universities and colleges, community colleges, technical colleges, trade schools, national military organizations, apprenticeship/union programs and non-profit postsecondary planning services.

We are excited to host 30+ college fairs across the state and provide college access to many Iowa students.
Be sure to register by our priority deadline of August 10. A late fee will be assessed after this date IF space is still available.

College Fair Bus Stipend - NEW FOR 2024-25!

The Iowa ACAC College Day/Night Committee would like to help more high schools attend our college fairs!

If you are a high school that would like to attend an Iowa ACAC College Fair and have needed additional funding for transportation, we encourage you to apply for one of our Bus Stipends. The maximum that we will award a school is $250. If your school is selected, you will be asked to provide a receipt for exact reimbursement costs. This is a pilot program with a set number of stipends, applying does not guarantee funding. Schools that apply for a fall stipend will be notified no later than August 15 if they’ve been selected.

If you’d like to be considered for a fall stipend, apply using the link below by June 15! There will be a separate deadline for spring fairs.
