2020-2021 Graduate Open House Events

To ensure the safety and well-being of our staff and guests, in-person Open House events and tours have been suspended. We are committed to sharing the WCU experience with you and our Open House events will be held virtually, via ZOOM, July - December 2020.

Please Note: The dates below are subject to change based on the impact of COVID-19 and guidance for on-campus events from the UNC System 

Our Open House events give you the opportunity to learn more about pursuing your graduate education at Western Carolina University. You'll have the chance to discover more details about the application process, hear from current students about their experience, attend breakout sessions with program representatives and ask your questions to our staff. Please be sure to register at least two days in advance so that we may ensure program representatives are available for your questions.

The Virtual Open House Events are broken in to sessions by program location, Main Campus - Cullowhee or Biltmore Park Instruction Site - Asheville. Distance programs will have their own information sessions scheduled throughout the Fall. Discover the available sessions below for your program:
