Open House - October 22

Our Fall Graduate Open House will be held on Tuesday, October 22 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Connelly Center. Speak with program directors and current students, and learn about the admissions process. The Open House is a great way to see what graduate student life is like at Villanova. There's really no substitute to visiting campus in person! Register for Open House.


Virtual Information Sessions

We host short virtual information sessions year round. 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 to campus. Virtual Information Session attendees will receive an application fee waiver.  Please note that the application fee waiver is only available for Graduate Arts & Sciences on-campus graduate programs (Bisk online programs are excluded).

Campus Tour for Graduate Liberal Arts and Sciences

Many departments will 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 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.


Graduate Fairs and Campus Visits 

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.
