Fairfax County Public Schools will host its annual College Fair and College Night Sunday and Monday, Oct. 20-21. The event is scheduled to take place from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Sunday at Fair Oaks Mall and from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday at Hayfield Secondary School.

Students are encouraged to  register for the events. Registered students will receive an admittance pass that will allow college admissions representatives to electronically scan their information. This way students won't have to fill out information cards for each college they visit.

According to FCPS, about 400 colleges and universities will be available during  College Fair and  College Night. The College Night event is an evening of workshops and college preparations led by FCPS staff members and outside experts.

For this year's event, topics will include SAT and ACT tests, career planning, financial aid, writing the college application essay, opportunities for student athletes, opportunities abroad, FCPS Family Connection, and considerations for students with disabilities.

Fair Oaks Mall is located at 11750 Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax, and Hayfield Secondary School is located at 7630 Telegraph Rd. in the Alexandria area.
