Events and Campus Visits
Note About COVID-19
Over the past few months, Boston University has closely monitored the growing impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak both internationally and locally. Due to the increased spread of the coronavirus throughout the United States and around the world, teaching at Boston University will be transitioning to a Learn from Anywhere model for the Fall 2020 semester. During this time, we will not be hosting any in-person walk-in visits, in-person Friday Visits or in-person Information Sessions, and campus will not be open to the general public. Prospective students are encouraged to attend the virtual events below. Please reach out to our office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.

Virtual Doctoral Info Sessions
Virtual Information Sessions
Admissions hosts a series of virtual information sessions throughout the school year between August and January.
These events are great opportunities to learn more about the SPH community, our academic offerings, and the application process. Students interested in doctoral programs (DrPH/PhD) are encouraged to schedule an individual appointment in lieu of attending an information session.
Information sessions are offered in the evening as a slightly more formal overview of programs, resources, and the admissions process. These sessions also have ample time for Q&A.
Friday Visits are a more informal chance to speak with a student as well as an admissions representative and ask questions about your program of interest.
On the Road: Graduate School Fairs
SPH participates in a series of online virtual fairs and graduate school fairs throughout the year. These events offer the opportunity to ask the School’s representatives any questions you have about the program or application process.
