Admitted Student Days
Let Us Show You Around.
Creighton University has moved all of our next remaining Admitted Student Days to a virtual format. Additionally, as more guidance is provided, we are also looking at adding dates for additional on-campus Admitted Student Days in the future.
You don’t have to wait to start your life at Creighton. All admitted students and their families are invited to our Admitted Student Days, where you’ll get the chance to explore the opportunities Creighton has to offer.
If you haven't decided where to go in the fall, this is your chance to ask questions, get to know our campus, and learn how Creighton could be the right fit for you. If you have decided Creighton is the place for you, this is your chance to learn more about your future home and meet new friends.
We’ll tell you everything you need to know about summer orientation, financial aid, housing, advising, and class registration. Then you’ll take a virtual tour of campus and experience Creighton’s friendly, welcoming spirit for yourself. You’ll also hear why current students have fallen in love with life on our campus, from the one-on-one attention they get in the classroom to the diverse organizations they have access to.
The best part? You’ll get to meet your future classmates – the bright, curious, and passionate people you’ll spend the next four years living, learning, and serving with at Creighton.
Admitted Student Days take place during the spring.
