NACAC National Conference

The NACAC National Conference, held this year in Columbus, OH, is designed to bring college admissions counseling professionals together to build relationships, foster productive conversation, and learn from each other. The Common Application will engage in a number of on-site activities, and we look forward to connecting with you in September. 

Be sure to visit Booth 627 in the Exhibit Hall, Thursday through Saturday, to pick up materials, chat with Common App staff, or record a short video for the Virtual Counselor.
