Attend an AAP Information Session: Undergraduate Students Only (Registration Required)
For prospective undergraduate students considering programs in architecture, fine arts, or urban and regional studies, an AAP information session is the best place to learn about the programs and ask questions before starting the application process. Information sessions are offered on Monday and Friday mornings at 10:10 a.m. and Wednesday afternoons at 1:15 p.m. from April through mid-November. You must register for an information session online in order to attend.
Information sessions and other university programming for prospective students will be extremely limited during the month of April. Prospective students should review the university calendar of programming very carefully before planning a visit.
All of the undergraduate colleges at Cornell conduct group information sessions. Students interested in academic programs in the other colleges at the university are welcome to register an attend. In addition, the Undergraduate Admissions Office offers general group information sessions Monday through Saturday throughout much of the year. These general sessions provide a broad overview of Cornell and the admissions and financial aid processes.
We encourage all prospective graduate students interested in architecture, art, and planning to visit the campus. To plan your visit, contact the department that you are the most interested in directly and they will gladly set up a visit.
Schedule an Interview
Several AAP programs require an interview for admission. Learn more about scheduling an interview for undergraduate or graduate admission.
Take a University Campus Tour
Student-led walking tours of the university are available most days of the week for most of the year. The tours last just over an hour and are designed to provide an overview of the entire Cornell campus.
Visit Studios and Classes at AAP
A visit to the art and architecture studios in Olive Tjaden Hall, Milstein Hall, Rand Hall, and The Foundry, where students spend much of their time, is an ideal opportunity to talk with current undergraduates about their experiences and get their impressions of life in the college. Prospective students can also attend a class in a relevant subject area. Class listings are available online and in each college's admissions office.
Explore Other Cornell Facilities
Expand your tour of AAP with a visit to Cornell’s Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art (closed on Mondays), one or more of the many libraries, or the Schwartz Center for the Performing Arts, and a meal in one of the many dining halls.
Prospective students interested in visiting the campus should call the AAP Admissions Office at (607) 255-4376 for assistance with arranging a visit.
The AAP Office of Alumni Affairs and Development is available to aid alumni with plans to visit the campus.
