Admission Events

Welcome to the event page for the Office of Admission.  I hope you will check back to this page frequently for Information Sessions and other events for prospective students.  Some of our events ask for a RSVP and others are open attendance.  Most of the events will be held on the main campus in Oakland, but we do host events on our Sacramento and San Mateo campuses as well. For Directions and Parking Information for all events please click here.

General Campus Tours of Samuel Merritt University

Summer time tours of SMU are back! These tours are not program specific, but will give an overall experience of SMU. These walking tours last about one hour and comfortable shoes should be worn. Because these tours are student led and are dependent on student schedules, advance reservation is required.
