NEW: All your college info on a "BARCODE" 

The Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (MACRAO) is pleased to announce an exciting change for our 2016 Fall College Fairs.  We are offering a way to streamline the registration and data collection process for sanctioned events.  Not only will the process be streamlined for the colleges, this free service for the student will increase efficiency at the college fair.  Each student attending the fair will have the opportunity to provide more detailed information and even elaborate on interests, extra-curricular activities, special accomplishments etc. about themselves. 

With a few quick clicks, students are encouraged to fill out an online registration form just once.  This process generates a personalized barcode that each student can print or display on their smartphone and present to the colleges at the fair.  The student information is quickly shared with the colleges of their choice accurately, in a more secured fashion.   

How does this work?

  • Students access website
  • Click on the “Student Register Now” button
  • Select Michigan state and choose the fair to attend
  • Complete the registration form (you may decide to complete only mandatory questions)
  • Check the “terms and conditions box” and submit the form
  • The barcode is displayed – they print the barcode and they’re done!

If each student at the fair used a barcode, this process will improve  

  • Increased face to face interaction
  • The hassle to complete tedious information cards at each college table
  • The wait in long lines to speak to a college representative
  • Valuable time to talk to the admissions counselor
  • The opportunity to learn more about their school of interest
  • The efficiency at the college fair

We encourage students to register early in the spring and summer months without worry of misplacing their barcodes.  Two days prior to the fair, a reminder email is sent to each registered student with a copy of their barcode attached.
