Get in touch with your intended program:

Graduate admissions functions differently from undergraduate admissions in that many of your questions in advance of the application are best directed to the Degree Program to which you are applying. If you plan to be on campus, contact the program's Director of Graduate Studies (DGS) in order to learn about the ways in which to launch your path as a researcher and professional. To learn more about your intended program, visit the Degree Programs page.


Schedule a campus tour:

Many of our students report that our beautiful campus is one of their favorite elements of graduate studies at Notre Dame. Its beauty, which has been recognized by publications like Condé Nast and Travel + Leisure, provides students with an idyllic, peaceful environment for producing powerful scholarship. As well, its library, laboratories, performance centers, and career centers are state of the art.

But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself! Schedule a free campus tour by contacting the Eck Visitors Center.


Plan a Group Visit:

We are very enthusiastic to welcome large groups from undergraduate institutions. If you are a higher education professional planning a group tour, please contact us to maximize your group’s experience of Notre Dame.
