    McCourt School of Public Policy Events

    In addition to the information on our website, prospective students can participate in several different kinds of information sessions to learn more about the admissions process and graduate programs offered at McCourt. 

    COVID-19 Update

    As of March 2020, The McCourt School cancelled all in-person Admissions events.

    The McCourt community is one of our strengths and our in-person events allow you to experience our engaged and collaborative environment first-hand. However, we recognize the importance of social distancing, and your health and security is our first priority.

    Please continue to visit our website and reach out to our team and student and alumni ambassadors. We also encourage you to follow us on social media and see what our community has been up to this year.

    Schedule a Virtual Visit
    Virtual visits are reserved for admitted students during the spring semester. We will resume scheduling one-on-one visits with prospective students in May, so check back in then for a link to the prospect request form!

    Admissions Informational Webinars
    Webinars will be hosted by McCourt representatives from Admissions and Student & Academic Affairs who will provide additional information regarding McCourt's graduate degree program offerings and the application process. Additional webinar dates will be posted soon, so please check back for updates.
