Admission Events

Check back 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
Campus tours are not program specific, but will give prospective students a comprehensive understanding of the programs and facilities at Samuel Merritt University. 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.

Sign up for a campus tour
