Minnesota Education Fairs
For Institutions and Admissions Representatives
MEFs are college fairs held in mid-fall and spring throughout Minnesota at high schools and other venues. They are a result of the collaborative work of MACAC, public and private post-secondary schools, and high schools. College representatives from post-secondary schools throughout the Midwest and other states attend to share information about their educational programs with students and parents.

Lead retrieval allows institutions to scan a barcode containing student information at a college fair. Information is collected in an excel file that is easily downloaded into various databases. While there is no deadline to order your scanners and leads, it is highly recommended to order at the time of your registration for the MEFs.

There are “admissible” and “non-admissible” expense guidelines. Food expense is capped at a certain dollar amount, and the other expenses are suggested ranges based on past site reports. Some suggested expense guidelines that are given to the site chairs are included below:
