Destination Days for Admitted Students 2019

Students admitted to the fall 2019 semester may attend one of our Destination Days. The date of the event you attend depends on the following determinants: whether you applied as an early action or regular decision student and the academic major into which you were admitted.

Each major is based within one of the university's 10 schools and colleges, listed below. If you are unsure where your major is located, please visit respective school/college websites listed below. 

Admitted students will receive an email inviting them to Destination Day. That email will have a registration link with parking and check-in information. You'll also find arrival details below. There is no website registration.
