Thank you for your interest in visiting the School of Public Affairs (SPA) at American University. Due to health and safety concerns regarding COVID-19, our campus is limiting campus visitors. We know that getting to speak with school representatives and visiting campus is important. With this, we will continue to host virtual campus visits daily that offer you valuable engagement options with an admissions representative, current student, campus tour, and, if interested, attendance in an SPA class. We now are also offering limited in person campus visit time slots (please pay attention to the Event Type that you choose when scheduling). We anticipate more in person campus visits opportunities to open up in the coming months.
If you are still exploring programs or in the application process, please schedule a virtual or in person visit here.
If you are an admitted/enrolled Fall 2021 student, please schedule a virtual or in person visit here.
If you are an admitted student for Spring 2022 or beyond, please schedule a virtual visit here.
SPA welcomes your visit to the beautiful American University campus, ideally positioned in the epicenter of the Public Affairs field--Washington, D.C.! Our campus visits are unparalleled experiences. We offer you the opportunity to meet with our graduate academic advisors and an admissions representative, and to tour the campus with a member of our Graduate Student Ambassador team. The customized visit enables you to learn more about our degree curricula, program planning, application and financial aid strategy, campus life and the student experience.
We offer campus visit dates every day (Monday-Friday) and take care of all arrangements upon your registration!
An admissions representative will go over application deadlines, building a compelling file, merit aid strategy, and the distinct features and opportunities tied to our master's degree programs.
A current student will serve as a campus tour guide and offer insights about their academic, professional, and student experience in SPA.
You also have the option to attend a class and engage with our world-class faculty. Indicate your interest in attending one of our course offerings as part of your campus visit registration. We will follow up with class options that align with your visit schedule.
