Career and Professional Development provides this list and links as a service to Virginia Tech students because these events are excellent resources for expanding your awareness of, and ability to connect with, graduate and professional schools. Given the cost of travel — for graduate school reps, and for students attending fairs at off-campus locations — take note of the extensive variety of profession-focused virtual fairs, enabling you to connect with school reps you might not otherwise meet.

Note: Career & Professional Development does not operate these fairs, does not control their websites, and might not receive notice if event details change. Place reliance on each event website and contact the sponsor if you have questions not answered on the event website.
