Attend an Info Session

Information Sessions are hosted several times a week during the academic year and once per week during the summer. These sessions provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about our degree programs, application requirements, and life at the GSD. Due to university restrictions concerning COVID-19, Information Sessions will be conducted virtually for the foreseeable future. Please note that we are not currently meeting with prospective students in person. These virtual sessions are intended as a replacement for all in person interactions. Register below.
