Admitted Students Day 2024

students gathering in the Humphrey School

Our Admitted Students Day provides an excellent chance for admitted students to learn about the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, meet our distinguished faculty, and network with current students as well as alumni. 

We hope you can join us Monday, April 1, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Review a schedule of the day's events. 

A light breakfast will be offered to accompany a welcome from our admissions and dean's offices before we jump into presentations from current students, the Office of Career and Student Success, and a conversation about funding presented by the Admissions Office. We will break to enjoy lunch and hear from a panel of alumni from across our master's degree programs.

The afternoon will focus on your specific program, allowing you to engage with professors and current students who will give you an in-depth perspective on what your time at the Humphrey School could look like.

NOTE: Grants are available to help subsidize the cost of travel.
