Can parents/grandparents/siblings attend Fallfest?

Of course! While this event is geared toward seniors in high school who are in the midst of their college search, the information provided pertains to parents and families as well. Anyone attending with the student is considered a guest for registration purposes.

Will my student be able to see the residence halls? 

Absolutely! After the morning session and academic department meetings, we offer a variety of open house opportunities that allow you to further explore Georgia College. 

I am not sure if my parents can attend with me yet, should I go ahead and sign up?

If you know that you will be attending, but you aren't sure if you will have a guest attending with you yet, that's okay! You can register yourself now and your guests later. We have an "Update Registration" form below that allows you to add guests online until the week of the event, but you are also able to add guests on-site the day of the event, if needed. 

What does the $20 fee cover? Do you offer refunds?

Fees for Fallfest include continental breakfast, lunch in our dining hall, and all event materials. If you need to cancel, refunds can be requested via email up to one week prior to the event.
