How to Order College Matchmaking®

Before Getting Started:

  2. Read this articleWhat Is College Matchmaking®?

NOTE: College Matchmaking® Annual Subscriptions are a different product than College Matchmaking® at college fairs. When College Matchmaking® is included at a college fair, colleges and students receive matches only for participants at that specific fair. When you order the College Matchmaking® annual subscription, colleges receive matches for students who have opted in to this service outside of participation at college fairs and opted in to this service at college fairs where College Matchmaking® was not available. Learn more about the specifics here.

Go to gotocollegefairs.com and select Products > College Matchmaking®
