Free College Fair in September

Susan Miller

Bethel College will host approximately 30 Christian colleges for the annual South Bend/Mishawaka Christian College Fair on Monday, Sept. 24 from 6:30-8:30 p.m., in the Wiekamp Athletic Center, 1001 Bethel Circle, Mishawaka, Ind. High school, junior high, and junior college students and parents are encouraged to attend.

Christian college representatives will be available to answer questions and discuss options for those interested in a four-year institution. Financial aid seminars will also be conducted on how a college education can be affordable.

Financial aid staff will be at the fair to assist students and families with requesting their Federal Student Aid ID, a code needed in order to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is used to determine a student’s eligibility for federal aid and many colleges also use it to distribute institutional aid. Families can file as early as Oct. 1, 2018 for the 2019-20 academic year.

This free event is sponsored by the North American Coalition of Christian Admissions Professionals and is open to the public. For more information or for a list of colleges attending, please visit or call 574.807.7600.
