We encourage prospective students to visit the GSD.

The Admissions Office offers Information Sessions 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.

Open House: Fall 2017
November 2 and 3

Register for Fall Open House

The GSD hosts an open house for prospective students every fall. This year, there will be two open houses depending on your program of interest: Thursday, November 2 for MDes, DDes, and MDE programs, and Friday, November 3 for MArch, MLA, MUP, MAUD, and MLAUD programs. Activities will include program overviews and question-and-answer sessions with faculty and current students, as well as the opportunity to sit in on classes and studios and tour the facilities. A schedule and RSVP link are now available. Participants are welcome to attend all or a portion of the events.

An open house for admitted applicants is held in April. Admitted students will receive information about this event with their admission letters.
