COVID-19 Update

Due to COVID-19, it is with the utmost concern for the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and community at-large that we announce changes to our visits and events starting fall 2020.

Beginning, August 3, 2020 prospective graduate students wishing to visit campus must complete an online appointment scheduler form to schedule an appointment.

  1. Graduate School appointments may be conducted virtually and in person. 

  2. In-person visitors will be required to provide their own masks and wear them during the entire visit. Visitors not having a mask will be provided one. Refusal to wear a mask indoors will result in denial of services.

  3. All pre-scheduled, in-person visitors will be directed to arrive at the Graduate School on the third floor of the Apple Building. They will be greeted at the front door at that location by a Graduate School member. 

  4. Visitors may meet with the Graduate School team member at that location and begin the campus tour from that location.

  5. In the case of early arrival, the visitor will be asked to wait outside the Graduate School. 

  6. Drop-in visitors may arrive at the Graduate School. Exterior signs will alert visitors that they must be wearing a mask during their visit. They will be instructed to knock on the door (as the door may be locked). Once masks are in place, a staff member will welcome them into the office. Arrangements will be made to accommodate their interests (materials, tour, etc.), as possible.
