Open Houses, Events and Visits
The best way you can decide if The Clarkson School is the place for you is to meet us.
We are excited to be able to welcome future students to campus and are now open to visitors from all 50 states. Take a look at all our options below for visiting, events, touring our campus, and connecting with our Clarkson community members, and review our Safety & Travel Information below. Our office remains committed to connecting with future students as they explore all that The Clarkson School and Clarkson University offer.
Visiting, Events and Tour Options
There is no better way to get to know campus than by coming to experience it yourself. You can plan a Personalized Visit, including:
- Meet with an admission counselor
- Take a personalized campus tour led by one of our student tour guides
- Lead your own on-campus tour by using our virtual campus map and stopping at the locations of your choice.
If you are unable to come to campus, we still have great options for you.
- Register for a Virtual Admission Interview.
- Sign up for a virtual guided campus tour with a Clarkson School tour guide narrating live to answer your questions.
- Personalize your experience with a self-guided tour that can be accessed from anywhere, including on campus.
- Meet with a Professor, Coach, or other members of the Clarkson community.

Come to campus during one of our Open Houses or Visit Days to meet faculty, staff and students from all majors, programs and interests. These are a full day of immersion into the Clarkson experience, where you'll be able to learn more about: majors, minors and specialty programs; student life, clubs and organizations; study abroad and career experiences; the admissions and financial aid processes; and our beautiful 640+ acre campus and surrounding North Country community.
We typically offer several major events per year - Summer Visit Days in June, July and August; Fall Open Houses sometime between end of September and early November; and Spring Open Houses (for Clarkson School and Transfer) and Accepted Students Days (by invitation only) in late March and/or early April.
A number of Fall events will be taking place in 2023 for prospective Clarkson School students, including three Fall Open Houses on Saturdays and October Visit Day.
Fall Open Houses
- Saturday, September 30 (all majors)
- Saturday, October 21 (engineering majors only)
- Saturday, November 4 (all majors)
October Visit Day

Our undergraduate admissions staff represents Clarkson at high schools and college fairs across the country. Find your counselor and find out where they'll be next, virtually and in-person.
On a limited basis, accepted students may have the opportunity to stay overnight with one of our current students to get the full college experience. Please contact the Clarkson School Office for more information.
