Join us for an on-campus info session, attend an open house, or visit us at one of our remote events. We look forward to meeting you!

Attend an Info Session

Information Sessions are hosted several times a week during the academic year and once per week during the summer. All information sessions are followed by a tour of the school. Sessions are not offered during the months of January and February due to application review.

RSVP to an Info Session

Attend an Open House

The GSD will be hosting its annual open house for prospective students on Thursday and Friday, November 1 and 2, 2018. Activities include program overviews and Q&A sessions with faculty and current students, as well as the opportunity to sit in on classes and studios and tour the facilities. Registration for the Fall Open House is now available. There will be an open house for admitted students in April. Details will be included in admission letters.

Please register by Friday, October 26. If you have not registered by that date, you are still welcome to register and attend, but please note that your name may not appear on our list of registrants. If you plan to attend both days because you are exploring multiple programs, please register for each event. Thank you!
