Summer Visit Options


Summer is a great time to visit, and you have several options to visit MCPHS and get to know us better, from a school overview, to major specific events, to an informative one-on-one meeting.

Option 1: Discovery Day

Interested in healthcare but still exploring your options? This is a great way to see all MCPHS has to offer. You’ll take a tour of the campus and our state-of-the-art labs, learn about all of our programs, meet the MCPHS admission staff and learn how to apply. You’ll also have an opportunity to hear current students talk about their college experiences and to ask them questions about classes, careers and what it’s like to be at MCPHS.

Option 2: Meet One-on-One with Admission

Have specific questions about the admission process or your major of interest? You can meet one-on-one with your admission counselor who will answer your questions about the major (or majors) you’re interested in, submitting your application, and financial aid and scholarship opportunities. You’ll also be able to tour the campus and meet with current students. These visits can be scheduled Monday through Friday between 8:30AM and 4:30PM.

The information session is an hour long and occurs before our campus tours on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
