Undergrad Admission Events

Whether you’re just starting to look at colleges, or have already been accepted to Chatham (congrats!), we’re excited to bring you on campus and help you take the next step of your college journey.

Academic Visit Days

Chatham offers more than 40 majors in sustainability and health; business and communications; and the arts and sciences. Whether you already know what you want to study or you’re ready to explore the possibilities, an academic visit day at Chatham will give you an in-depth look at our top-notch academics. You’ll also be able to get to know campus better, to give you a sense of how you might spend your time outside the classroom.


Transfer Visit & Registration Days

Looking to transfer to Chatham? Then attend a Transfer Visit Day. Each transfer day includes a tour of campus, meetings with your personal transfer counselor, and the opportunity to focus on answering all things transfer. We think you’ll like what you learn. Already accepted as a transfer? Then attend one of our Transfer Fridays or Transfer Registration Days customized specifically for the unique needs of our transfer students.

Academic Scholarship Days

At Chatham, we’re proud about the financial aid we’re able to offer accepted students, and academic scholarship days are an important part of making that happen. In addition to the interview (which will take place with faculty in your academic area of interest), you’ll get to have a one-on-one meeting with a financial aid counselor to help answer your questions about Chatham’s affordability, applying for FAFSA, and other college financing questions. This is also a great day to meet some of your eventual professors and classmates. Complete your application, because this event is only open to accepted and deposited students.
