Georgia Grad Fair Circuit

NOTE: Information on 2016 grad fair dates is still being updated. Information that is known is posted below and will be updated as it becomes available. In the interim, you may contact the individual schools through their contact listed below for more specific information.

This website has been designed to make it easy for graduate school recruiters to find information on graduate fairs going on in Georgia in one convenient location on an annual basis. Information on the dates, times, and locations of graduate and professional school fairs for the schools participating in this year’s Georgia Grad Fair Circuit will be posted in the early summer each year. Travel information and recommendations are also provided below.


  • Although great care is taken each year to organize the events with respect to timeline and geographical flow, the availability of facilities along with other campus events/schedules at the various schools may dictate otherwise at some points during the Georgia Grad Fair Circuit.
  • All events are general graduate/professional school fairs that are open to all types of graduate programs unless otherwise specified.
  • Each event operates independently. Therefore, recruiters will need to contact each school of interest to register for that event. Recruiters should be mindful that the registration deadlines and policies of each fair will differ as well.  There is no centralized registration for all events.
