Prospective students are encouraged to attend an information session and a campus tour for an introduction to Penn. To delve deeper, you can attend a class or a school-specific information session, or perhaps enjoy lunch with a current undergraduate student. Advanced registration is required for all campus visits.
Information sessions, led by Admissions Officers, offer an overview of Penn and insight into the undergraduate admissions process. Campus tours, led by current Penn students in the Kite and Key Society, complement the information session and are the best source of information about the undergraduate student experience. If this is your first visit to Penn, we encourage you to take advantage of both.
Prospective transfer students are invited to our Transfer Drop-In Sessions, available December 18-20, and select Fridays January through March. Please consult the Campus Visit Calendar for additional information.
