We welcome prospective graduate candidates to drop-in or schedule appointments during our regular business hours (Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM EST).

Graduate admissions representatives can assist you in understanding the application and financial aid processes, help you navigate our graduate programs, and put you in touch with advisors and faculty who can further discuss specifics of a program such as the curriculum, internship opportunities, and the exciting research being conducted.

To meet with program advisors or faculty you should contact your program of interest directly. You might also be interested in attending an admissions related event where presenters talk specifically about our graduate programs.
