Advance registration allows students and families more time to ask questions and learn about the different institutions represented and the resources they offer.

The event also will include sessions conducted by representatives from Trine’s Financial Aid Office on completing the FAFSA and college financial aid at 6:15 p.m. and 7 p.m. Concessions will be available during the fair from Storm’s Fast Break.
