MACC Admission Events

We offer a variety of events that bring you to campus, get your questions answered and put you directly in touch with our current students, faculty members and admission team.

You come to us: 

Decision in a Day

An accelerated, one-day admissions event. Applicants interview in the morning, and receive an admission and financial award decision in the afternoon. This event is when we award our largest fellowships.
