Given the large number of visitors each year, individual appointments with prospective freshmen are not feasible; however, ample time for questions and discussion is provided during CALS Admissions Information Sessions.
What can you expect?
Lasting approximately one hour, CALS Admissions Information Sessions focus on freshman and transfer admission and include: a general overview of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, an explanation of the admissions process, a glimpse into how the admission committee evaluates applications, and plenty of time to answer questions about both academic and student life.
During the academic year, student ambassadors may also join the CALS Admissions Information Sessions to offer insights from a student's perspective.
Refer to the schedule below when planning your visit.
Undergraduate Admissions Information Session and College Panels

This admissions information session will feature a brief introduction to undergraduate admissions with the Undergraduate Admissions Office, an overview of each of the featured undergraduate colleges, and a panel discussion about academic programs, curriculum, graduation requirements, advising, research, off-campus opportunities, and student post-graduation plans. At the conclusion of the discussion, panelists will respond to questions from the audience. Campus walking tours will be available before and after the session at the Day Hall lobby.

2015 CALS Admissions Information Session Schedule:
CALS 2015 Information Session schedule will be released in spring 2015. Information Sessions will be offered from June through November.
Note: Transfer students are encouraged to attend a CALS Information Session and review the CALS transfer website for details about transferring and required coursework. Individual phone consultations are available on a limited, case by case basis if prospective transfers have additional questions regarding transfer planning. Ideally, appointments should be scheduled one academic year prior to the semester before they plan to apply in order to allow for sufficient time to appropriately plan their upcoming semesters in preparation to transfer. These appointments are not evaluative interviews, but a time to ask questions about the transfer process and to discuss proper course selection.
