During this event, you will have the option to build your own schedule, with specific sessions for high school sophomores/juniors, as well as a focus on high school seniors looking to enroll in college for the fall.

In addition to group sessions, personal meetings will also be held throughout the event. Take the opportunity to meet with Admissions, Financial Aid, and Student Accounts, as well as our Transfer Evaluation team.
