Undergraduate Admission

Information Session

We're currently offering limited registration for our On-Campus Information Session.

Register Now!

The Information Session is perfect for students who are looking for more information about the value of Carnegie Mellon, our unique academic options, our campus community and the admission and financial aid processes.

The session is led by an admission counselor and lasts approximately one hour and 15 minutes.

Please note that Information Sessions will be paused November through February as our admission staff is reviewing applications for Fall 2022. 

Information Session Guidelines

Because the health and safety of you and our campus community are our first priority, the Information Session will be subject to the following guidelines:

  • Registration is required.
  • Each registered prospective student visitor is allowed to bring one guest with them. Additional guests cannot be accommodated.
  • Session capacity will be capped.
  • A group Q&A session will be offered at the end of the presentation, but the presenter won't be taking one-on-one questions. If you'd like to connect one-on-one with a counselor, please schedule a virtual admission counseling session.

Entrance Information

Please note that the entrance to the Information Session will be open 10 minutes prior to the start of the session and that doors will be closed 30 minutes after the start of the session. If you arrive more than 30 minutes late, you won't be able to enter.

Also, please note that additional guests won't have access to indoor areas.
