On- and Off-Campus Admissions Events Cancelled

For the health and safety of our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, the university has cancelled on- and off-campus admissions events, including campus tours, through April. We strongly discourage in-person visits to our office in order to follow the CDC guidelines on healthy social distancing. Instead, we encourage prospective students and families with questions to contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions via phone, live chat, or email.
