Our Summer View Open House is Sunday, July 24. Registration will open in late May. Prospective high school students and their families are encouraged to visit campus to hear directly from admissions and financial aid counselors, faculty, and current students.

Transfer Information Sessions
Transfer information sessions are small question and answer sessions designed for students transferring from another college or university. You and your family are encouraged to visit to meet with an admissions counselor to discuss transferring credits, choosing a major, and learning more about life on Hawk Hill. Choose from multiple dates to visit. (Transfer students are also welcome to attend an SJU View Open House event).
Schools or organizations wishing to bring groups of 10 or more high school aged students are welcome to schedule a visit on a Tuesday or Thursday. The visits are 90 minutes, take place at 11:00 AM-12:30PM, and will consist of a Discover SJU presentation and a campus tour. We ask that requests are made at least three weeks in advance of your planned visit day.
Ask – A – Counselor
Available Monday through Friday upon request. While we do not require an interview as part of our admissions process, these "one-on-one" appointments are available should you have detailed questions about the admissions process that would not typically be addressed in a presentation. Please call 610-660-1300 for an appointment.
An interview with a member of our esteemed alumni is available upon request. While we do not require an interview as part of our admissions process, we encourage this avenue of accessibility for high school juniors and seniors to learn more about Saint Joseph's from the perspective of a graduate of the University. Interviews will be conducted at off-campus locations across the country based on the availability of our alumni. Show us your interest in SJU and request an interview.
We love having high school counselors, independent counselors, and community-based organization counselors that work with college bound students on campus. Visit our Counselor Page to find information about events specifically for you!
