City of Chicago Programs
IACAC continues to be aware of the unique issues surrounding schools located within the City of Chicago and therefore has chosen to list all programs, submitted to the Illinois College Fair Committee, taking place within the Chicago City limits. These are usually single-school programs and will only be listed if they are 90 minutes in length. Be sure to view the CPS Visit Protocol before visiting these schools.
Single school fairs: 1.5 hours maximum
Multiple school fairs: 2 hours maximum
