You will not be able to change your Class Visit selection after you submit your registration form – choose wisely!

If you would like to visit a second class, there will be a table at Registration where you can ask about any remaining seats. Keep in mind that while Spring Open Campus ends Friday at 12:15 p.m., there are Friday afternoon classes that are not part of the program that will have seats available.

Parents and other visitors, as well as students, are permitted to attend one Special Lecture during the program. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at Registration on Thursday and Friday.
