Spring College Fairs:
In the spring, CVR's cover college fairs w/ a primary focus on current high school juniors. These fairs "plant the seed" so to speak.

Generally speaking, there are fewer spring fairs than fall fairs. CVR's should encourage students to apply early to The Citadel. If students send The Citadel a complete application, high school transcript and test scores, the Admissions Office will have a decision to them before they return to high school for their senior year.

CVR's have the authority to print their name & class & sign the front of the student applications to waive the $40.00 application fee. Parents Love This!
