TOWSON, MD—All Baltimore County Public Schools high school students are invited to participate in the fifth annual BCPS-HBCU Virtual College Fair.

The fair will be held on Thursday, November 11, 2021, from 4 – 7 p.m.

At the free event, students will have the opportunity to meet representatives from more than 30 Historically Black Colleges and Universities from throughout the nation. Students and their parents can participate in virtual workshops related to the college selection process and financial aid. Students can register for the fair online or with their school counselors or college counselors. All participating seniors are encouraged to complete the Common Black College Application (CBCA). Seniors who complete the CBCA can apply to all participating HBCUs, at once, for a flat fee of $20. BCPS students also may use the CBCA waiver code MDFSI03 to waive the regular flat fee.

“I encourage all BCPS high school students to take advantage of this really special opportunity to explore their college options,” said BCPS Superintendent Dr. Darryl L. Williams. “Since Milford Mill Academy first launched this college fair in 2017, more than 4,300 BCPS seniors and juniors have been served. We look forward to reaching even more students and their families at this year’s fair!”
