Information Sessions

The Office of Admission offers Information Sessions (both on and off campus) throughout the year. Please check our on-campus visit calendar for availability before scheduling your visit. We're also currently offering a Virtual Information Session that you can view below. 


Watch a virtual version of our Information Session for a comprehensive introduction to Carnegie Mellon's colleges and programs, the city of Pittsburgh as well as the admission and financial aid processes. The Information Session will provide you the Carnegie Mellon experience from the comfort of your own home or anywhere in the world!  


For those applying to join the Fall 2021 first-year class and beyond, SAT subject tests are neither required nor recommended. 


From February-November, we offer an On-Campus Information Session for students who are looking for more information about the value of Carnegie Mellon, our unique academic options, our campus community, and the admission and financial aid processes. This session lasts an hour and is followed by a Q&A session. Visitors can also participate in a campus tour after the information session. Register here!

In addition to the campus tour, various schools and departments within Carnegie Mellon offer departmental tours and events. This is an opportunity for prospective students to tour facilities, attend an information session or meet with a faculty member while on campus.

In a City Near You

In the early summer and fall, the admission staff travels to various parts of the globe, hosting information sessions in hotels or high schools. The information session offers an experiential look at the university through student and faculty stories. See if we'll be coming to a city near you!
