SIS Campus Visits and Events

If you're in the DC area, we hope you'll come visit us on campus for an Open House or information session. During the academic year, we also offer class visits and opportunities to meet current students and faculty in your program of interest.

If you're away from campus, you can still connect with us via email, phone, or by visiting our Webinar Archives page for recorded copies of past online Open Houses and Program Information Sessions.

New online, on-campus, and regional events are added through the year, so be sure to complete our information request form to receive important updates!


Meet with a Graduate Admissions Specialist

We offer the opportunity for prospective applicants and newly admitted students to schedule informational meetings with an SIS Graduate Admissions Representative throughout the week. Please RSVP for a group or one-on-one session below.

Small group information sessions

One-on-one information sessions

Please note that, from January 1st, 2014 - March 1st, 2014, one-on-one information sessions are reserved for active Fall 2014 applicants. Small group information sessions are held twice weekly, and are open to both current and prospective applicants. 

We appreciate your patience during this busy time of year. If you are an active Fall 2014 and would like to request a one-on-one appointment, please contact our office at sisgrad@american.edu or (202) 885-1646.

Sit in on an SIS Class

During the academic year, we offer the opportunity to sit in on a graduate class. This provides a first-hand glimpse of your future graduate education at SIS. Since classroom space is limited, we ask that you please register for no more than two class visits per semester. Please note that class visit dates and times are subject to change.
