Fall 2021 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

The Virtual Information Sessions held at 3 pm Pacific Standard Time and are group meetings led by Admissions Counselors. They provide an opportunity for students to learn more about our programs and ask questions about the application process. Information Sessions last around 30 minutes followed by time for a Q&A.

The type of Information Sessions are:

  • General Information Session (Mondays) - All Schools
  • Performing Arts (Tuesdays) - The Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance, The Herb Alpert School of Music, School of Theater
  • Visual Arts Information Sessions (Wednesdays) - School of Art and School of Film/Video

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.

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