Illinois Regional College Fair Regulations

  1. Representatives should arrive on time for a program and remain until the end.
  2. Promotional giveaways are strictly prohibited. Only literature pertaining to the college or university is permitted. If you are not sure if an item is acceptable, please ask the On-Site Chairperson. The following are examples of prohibited materials/activities:
    • Key chains
    • Demonstrations (including those with food preparation, drawings/raffles, etc.)
    • Water bottles
    • T-shirts
    • Pennants

  3. Recruitment and distribution of literature is restricted to the parameters of the booth or table space.

  5. Displays cannot exceed or obstruct the view of adjacent representatives. Displays should be no larger than 8ft. high (with the item on the floor) x 6ft. wide x 3ft. deep.
  6. Conversations with students and parents are to be conducted in a professional manner. Representatives are asked to remain behind or on the side of tables, not in the aisles.
  7. Institutions will be expected to notify the program sponsor if a representative other than a professional staff member or a faculty member will be attending the scheduled program.
  8. The primary responsibility of college representatives at Illinois Regional College Fair programs is to speak with students and parents about their individual institution; it is NOT the responsibility of representatives to speak with individuals who may be trying to promote educational products or services.
  9. Failure to adhere to these guidelines will result in your institution being asked to vacate your table and the Illinois Regional College Fairs. Colleges and universities participating in Illinois Regional College Fair programs are expected to adhere to the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) guidelines.
