If individuals are thinking about applying to graduate school but are unsure about how they should begin this process, they may want to spend the spring attending graduate school fairs, information sessions or similar events. This will typically allow them to learn about everything from a school's academic offerings to financial aid options.
Quinnipiac University in Connecticut is one school that will host two graduate information sessions in the months ahead. On March 7, Quinnipiac's Mount Carmel campus will host an event with a focus on its schools of business and communications, according to the university's Web site. Then, on April 6, prospective students will have a chance to learn about Quinnipiac's schools of education, health sciences, nursing and arts and sciences at the university's North Haven campus.
During these information sessions, those in attendance can meet with representatives from various graduate programs, such as Quinnipiac's Master of Arts in Teaching Elementary Education and its MBA degree. In addition to answering academic questions, these individuals will be ready to field queries related to financial aid and other aspects of the admissions process.
Meanwhile, in Virginia, the University of Mary Washington plans to hold a graduate school fair on April 4 inside of its Anderson Center, according to the school's Web site. During this event, which will be hosted by the university's Office of Graduate Admissions and the Office of Academic and Career Services, visitors can learn about the school's advanced programs, such as its MBA, Master of Science in Management Information Systems and Master of Education.
Of course, many other colleges and universities are likely to host graduate school-themed events in the months ahead. As a result, individuals who have a desire to advance their education should visit the Web sites of schools they have an interest in applying to and see what they have planned for spring.
