Admitted Student Information Sessions for First-Year Students

These information sessions are for our admitted first-year students and their families. We will address those questions that you may have before making your final decision whether to attend Bridgewater State University and submit your tuition deposit by the National Notification Date (May 1). Financial Aid, on-campus housing and what to expect next should you deposit will all be covered. The session will conclude with a student-guided campus tour.
