Student Presentations about the College 

Led by enthusiastic volunteers, the College Cognoscenti give presentations to families in small groups about what it means to be at Penn from an academic and co-curricular perspective. Independent of undergraduate admissions, the Cognoscenti are a great resource for prospective students to learn about the curriculum, student research experiences and other academic details specific to Penn's College of Arts and Sciences. Register for a presentation here.

Courses for Visitors

The College created a course visitation list to encourage prospective students to taste the academic experience Penn provides. The courses on this list have been vetted, but prospective students should introduce themselves to the instructor at the beginning of class to make sure an exam or other special event hasn’t been planned. 

Admissions Information Sessions and Tours

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions offers prospective students and their supporters a variety of resources to learn more about Penn and the admissions process. Information sessions and campus tours are held daily throughout the year. For more detailed information on these sessions, plus class statistics and application instructions, visit the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
