Off Campus Opportunities

Updated 10/21
 
* With the cancellation of many campus tours and outreach events, many universities are shifting to virtual tours and online outreach efforts. Please visit the websites of these universities to see all they are doing. In addition, make sure to read all correspondences received via email and check student portals for deadlines, to-do lists, and/or next steps. You have worked too hard to jeopardize admittance due to missing deadlines.
