Graduate Arts and Sciences Events

Virtual Information Sessions

We're hosting short virtual information sessions this fall and spring. Our Assistant Director will give a brief presentation focusing on the admissions process and graduate student life at Villanova before opening the discussion board for your questions. Space is limited for these events, so register now and we'll send you a web link to participate and reminder messages. This is a good introductory session to attend if you can't make it in person to our Open House. Virtual Information Session attendees will receive a application fee waiver.  Please note that the application fee waiver is only available for Graduate Arts & Sciences on-campus graduate programs (University Alliance online programs are excluded).

Graduate Studies Upcoming Campus Events


Graduate Open House

This is an opportunity to visit campus and to meet with the graduate program director, faculty and current students in your program of interest. This event gives you one-on-one conversation time with program directors so you can get all of your questions answered. We offer one fall and one spring open house each academic year. You can take a campus tour while you're here and the application fee is waived if you attend.

Campus Visit for Graduate Liberal Arts and Sciences

If you are unable to make the Open House, many departments will be able to host you for a department-specific visit on a date/time that is mutually agreeable. Just get in touch with your program director to ask how the department handles visits. However, Graduate Studies is also willing to give you a campus tour and general overview of Villanova and graduate student life. We're available to meet with you Monday - Friday between 9AM-5PM. Please send us an email to arrange your visit!


Graduate Fairs

Graduate Studies goes on the road and online to attend Graduate School Fairs hosted by other universities and organizations.  Anyone can join a virtual fair, so if the times below are convenient for you, we look forward to chatting with you then.  Otherwise, for the in-person fairs, If you are currently an undergraduate student at one of these schools, please stop by our table at the event! This gives you a chance to pick up brochures and get some general questions answered.
