Graduate Admissions

Welcome!

Mark your calendar for Friday, August 27, 2021 to save the date for the required, school-wide Weitzman New Student Orientation.

In the upcoming months, this page will be updated with the full schedule of optional, recommended, and required Orientation events, which will begin mid-summer. Don't worry -- summer events will be offered in formats available to students not yet in Philadelphia.

In addition to the school-wide Orientation activities, please refer to your academic department for additional, program-specific orientation events.

If you have any questions or concerns about New Student Orientation, please contact the Office of Student Services at des-studentservices@design.upenn.edu
