The event is held in cooperation with the Tennessee Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (TACRAO). The dual fair targets area public and private high school and homeschool students, Motlow students, as well as the general public. Admission is free.

"The college and career fair continues as an annual public service event that provides a vital service to area high schools, homeschool cooperatives, and the general public," according to Brenda Cannon, director of special events at Motlow. "The event is a one-stop shop that brings together more than 50 vendors in a central location to showcase public, private, proprietary, and technical colleges and universities as well as all branches of the US armed services under one roof. Event attendees can gain a wealth of information regarding opportunities in higher and technical education while speaking directly with a representative from each institution."
