On-Campus Information Session

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

Register for a campus visit

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 with a counselor, please contact the Office of Admission.

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.

CMU COVID-19 Mitigation Protocols

Minimum Requirements and Daily Self-Assessment

Visitors must review and agree to comply with the University's visitor protocols in order to register and be on campus.

You'll receive information about our Daily Symptom Self-Assessment (PDF)(opens in new window) in your reminder email. You do not need to submit this form to our office.

Vaccination Status and COVID-19 Testing

Visitors to Carnegie Mellon's campus are expected to be vaccinated against COVID-19 unless unable to be vaccinated due to disability or strong religious/moral conviction. When you register for a campus tour, you'll be asked to attest that you're either fully vaccinated or plan to have received a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of your campus visit.

Facial Coverings

Facial coverings (sufficient to cover the nose and mouth) are now required on campus, regardless of vaccination status. They are required outdoors when less than six feet of others and indoors at all times except when eating or drinking.
