Campus Visit

The campus visit is an important part of the decision making process. We hope you will come to campus to experience Scranton for yourself. Please choose a visit option below or call the Visitor's Center at 570-941-6654 to schedule a visit. We offer the following visit opportunities:

Graduate Information Receptions: This session will provide you with the opportunity to meet with staff from the Office of Graduate & International Admissions as well as faculty from your program of interest. You will learn the application and admission process and speak with faculty on the academic details of your program. Information receptions are hosted once a month within the Office of Graduate & International Admissions.

Personal Appointments: This half hour individual appointment with a member of the Graduate Admissions staff is non-evaluative and will provide you with information on the application and admission process. Personal appointments are offered based on the availability of the staff.
