In the rapidly evolving environment of COVID-19, we have made the disappointing but necessary decision to host our fall open house virtually, rather than an on-campus event. This informative and interactive virtual event will include a student, staff, and faculty panel discussion as well as an admission and financial aid Q&A.

What’s planned

During the Virtual Fall Open House there will be opportunities for you to learn about College of the Atlantic, our admission and financial aid process, what it means to study human ecology, and get a closer look into our campus from wherever you are.
