Graduate Arts and Sciences Events

Virtual Information Sessions

We'll be offering several virtual information sessions this fall. Our Admissions Coordinator 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'lll 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 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.
