Prospective applicants are welcome to visit the school, attend information sessions, sit in on classes (arranged by the MSFS Admissions Office) and meet with current students. While we cannot accommodate drop-in visitors, there are various ways to arrange a visit to campus:

Information Sessions

Information sessions will be offered most Mondays at 4:00 p.m. and Fridays at 2:00 p.m., except during holidays.  The session (capped at five attendees) includes a brief presentation by an admissions representative and provides prospective students with an opportunity to ask any relevant questions they might have about the program. Prospective students should sign up for an information session.  Email MSFS at with any questions.

NOTE: We will begin offering Information sessions on Mondays at 4pm starting in mid-March after the application review period. You may sign up for those through the same sign up link.

Class Visits

The MSFS Admissions Office will be happy to arrange for you to meet with an MSFS student and visit a class. We ask that you provide us with at least a one-week notice to make arrangements.
