Admitted Students

Congratulations on your admission!

Check out the optional events just for admitted students for 2024. Be sure to read through all of your options and review the important next steps for admitted students at the bottom of this page.

Faculty Information Sessions and Admitted Student Days:

Faculty Information Sessions:

Did you get the chance to meet with a faculty member from your intended major? If not, this is a great way to learn how faculty support and advise students and information about coursework, internships, clubs and organizations and more!

The Faculty Information Sessions (Fridays) are held in conjunction with Admitted Students Day (Saturdays) in case you want to spend the weekend at SRU! Register for a Faculty Information Session.

Admitted Student Days:

Whether you are still in the process of making your final college decision or already committed to SRU, this event is designed for students and families to learn more about The Rock.

Not only will students get time with current SRU students and parents/guardians with staff from various campus departments, you’ll learn:

  • about Housing
  • how SRU prepares students for life after college
  • have the opportunity to meet individually with financial aid
  • tour campus (including our residence halls)
  • and more!

Register for an Admitted Student Day.

Daily Campus Visits

Our Daily Campus Visit includes a 45-minute admissions presentation with one of our admissions counselors. You will learn about what SRU has to offer academically and outside of the classroom, the admissions process, financial aid, scholarships, and more! The presentation is followed by a campus tour with a current SRU student. Register online for a Daily Campus Visit.
