Admission Office Programs for Admitted First-Year Students

Every April, after all admitted applicants have been notified, 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.  Learn more about those programs.

Office of Student Affairs Programs for New Students

In June, 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 then.

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. Learn more about the opportunities for parents to become involved in the Amherst community.
