Regional Forums

The Professional Development Regional Forum scheduled for Syracuse on Friday, March 2, is cancelled, due to inclement weather.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Each year NYSACAC partners with colleges and high schools throughout the state that serve as host sites for a professional development forum series addressing relevant topics and current trends in the field of college admission counseling. 

This year, we are focusing on legal issues in college admissions (topics will include DACA, diversity in admissions, Early Decision deadlines, and more).  We will also have updates on Excelsior and the Enhanced Tuition Awards. Panelists will share their experience of the past year and provide their expertise for looking ahead to future cycles. Participants will be able to ask questions, as well as share ideas and opinions related to the work we do and how we best support our students and families in these times of transition.

This year’s dates and locations are:

Syracuse University: Friday, March 2, 2018

Hofstra University: Friday, March 9, 2018

University of Rochester: Friday, March 16, 2018

Siena College: Tuesday, March 20, 2018

Fordham University: Friday, March 23, 2018

Manhattanville College: Wednesday, March 28, 2018

D’Youville College: Friday, April 13, 2018


We would like to thank our host institutions in advance for their time and support in making these programs a success. Please feel free to email us with any questions. We look forward to seeing you this spring!
