Admitted Student Days

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

Also during an Admitted Student Day, you'll 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.

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 14 and 15, 2018, where professors and other representatives from each department gather at a large "fair." Individual appointments with faculty are not available during Admitted Student Days.
