Admitted Student Days

Students in Sunlit Lobby - SMDuring these weekday events, you'll get multiple answers to the important question, “Why Fordham?”

You'll also hear from the deans of the college to which you've been admitted; talk with current Fordham students, administrators, and faculty; and be able to ask about next steps, financial aid, housing, and other enrollment topics.

Learn more about your major now

If you are looking for very specific information about a particular major or academic program, you'll find the most detail right now on our Majors and Minors page. Or, you should attend our weekend open house for admitted students, Spring Preview on April 13 and 14, 2019, where professors and other representatives from each department gather at a large fair. Individual appointments with faculty are not available during Admitted Student Days.

Let us know you're coming

Some of our Admitted Student Days will reach registration capacity, so be sure to register and receive your registration confirmation before booking flights or making other travel plans. Register for any Admitted Student Day by going to our event calendar, clicking the date you want to visit, and then choosing the college to which you have been admitted.

  • Choose the B program if you’ll have a longer commute and want a more-compact program.
  • At any time during the day, you can talk with an admission counselor.
  • Financial aid counselors will participate in the afternoon panel for parents and will be available after for individual consultation.
