Thank you for your interest in attending an Admission event! Please note that the following events are geared towards prospective students who are interested in our master's degree programs. If you are interested in a post-master's or doctoral program, please contact our office to schedule an individual appointment. Throughout the year, the GSLIS Admission Office holds information sessions at our Boston campus, at Mount Holyoke in South Hadley, MA, and at the Eric Carle Museum in Amherst, MA. In the fall, we travel to various graduate fairs to meet with prospective students. Please check the second chart on this page for our travel schedule.
The Admission Office holds monthly information sessions to provide an opportunity for prospective students to engage with admission representatives, faculty, students, and/or alumni. To see more details or to register for an information session, please click on the location of the event. This will bring you to a page with information about that particular event, as well as a "Register Now" form to fill out.
Information session attendees will receive a $65 application fee waiver. The waiver is only valid for applications for future terms - it cannot be used toward applications already submitted.
