Fall 2020 Campus Tours and Information Sessions

Coronavirus Update: Due to the COVID-19 situation we have suspended our on-campus Information Sessions and Campus tours however, we do intend to start these back up when we are on campus and able to allow guests on campus. In the meantime, we are offering virtual Information Sessions. We will update this page of our website when we are able to again have campus tours. 

Virtual information sessions require a reservation. We encourage you to register at least a week in advance. Space is limited.

Virtual Information Session

Information sessions are small, comprehensive group meetings led by an Admissions Counselor to provide an opportunity for prospective undergraduate students to learn more about our programs and to ask questions about the application process.

Are you a graduate student interested in one of our Masters or Doctoral programs? We encourage you to contact the Admissions Counselor for your program of interest directly.

We do not offer information sessions on Fridays or the weekends.

Please note, no audio or video recording is allowed.

If you would like to attend an information session, you must register for a specific date through our online event registration page.
