Graduate Student Visits

Whether you will be pursuing an advanced degree full-time or part-time or even entirely online, it is important for you to get to know our campus and members of our learning community. A visit to campus provides a firsthand opportunity to meet personally with our Admissions counselors and explore our facilities and resources for graduate and doctoral students. 

On-Campus Visit Guidelines 

We welcome prospective students and their families to visit our beautiful campus! For the safety of you, our welcomed guests, and the WNE community, we have established guidelines and expectations for your visit after careful review of recommendations from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We ask that our visitors familiarize themselves with the guidelines below prior to visiting campus.
