SBNM Graduate Information Sessions
For prospective students who reside in the Chicago area, information sessions are an excellent way to explore the campus and meet face-to-face with faculty and staff. Information sessions are held at each of our campus locations, including Chicago and Grayslake. An information session typically lasts 60-90 minutes and is an excellent way to:
- Learn about North Park degree and certificate programs, including information about admissions and financial aid
- Have the opportunity to meet faculty to discuss your career and how it can be supported through our programs
- Tour the campus and have an opportunity to ask as many questions as you wish
Get all the information you need to get started at one of our upcoming information sessions. You still have time to apply and begin coursework this year; upcoming seven-week terms begin October 19, 2013, and January 13, 2014.
