Programs for Admitted and New Students
Admission Office Programs for Admitted First-Year Students
Every April, after all admitted applicants have been notified and before the May 1 response date, the Amherst College Office of Admission sponsors several events for admitted first-year students: on-line chats with current Amherst students; on-campus open houses; and admitted student receptions across the country. Click here to learn more about those programs.
Office of Student Affairs Programs for New Students
In May, new students will receive extensive information from the Office of Student Affairs about registration for classes, on-campus housing options, travel and arrival at Amherst, and the New Student Orientation Program (which begins at the end of August). Details of programming and specific scheduling dates will not be finalized until spring.
Programs for Parents of New Students
Parents are important, too! Through our Alumni and Parents Programs, parents are encouraged to become part of the Amherst family. Click here for more information on the opportunities for parents to learn more about Amherst and become involved in the Amherst community.
