Alcanza - High School Registration

Greetings from George Mason University!

The Office of Admissions at George Mason University invites you and your students to join us for the 17th annual ALCANZA College Fair! Mason hosts ALCANZA as part of our effort to inform Latino high school students in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area about opportunities in higher education.

With your participation, we hope to provide information essential to the college application and financial aid process and encourage students to pursue their education beyond high school. More than 150 colleges and universities from all over the nation attend ALCANZA for the opportunity to meet with over 1,500 high school students from all over the D.C. metropolitan area. We hope to welcome you to campus this October!

Student and Teacher Resource

Alcanza is Automated!
Through Go To College Fairs, students will have the opportunity to register online, allowing colleges to collect information by using a scanner device. Once registered, each student will receive a bar code linked to the student's contact information which the college representative will scan at the college fair. This process can significantly expedite the exchange of information between students and institutions, allowing for more meaningful conversations at the Alcanza College Fair.
