Graduate Student Visit

Visiting Campus for Admitted Chemistry Graduate Students

All admitted prospective graduate students are encourged to visit the Caltech campus, so that you can make an informed decision. Once you are admitted, you should decide on attending one of the two visit weekends, March 1-3, 2018 or March 15-17, 2018. These visit weekends are very informative and the CCE faculty and graduate students will be available to give you a taste of graduate school at Caltech.  Please note that we do not host individual visits, so it is very important that you sign up for one of the visit weekends as early as possible.  Details of the visit will be outlined in admittance correspondence.

Visiting Campus for Chemical Engineering Prospective Graduate Students

Admitted prospective graduate students will be invited to visit the Caltech campus. The visiting weekend for 2017 will be March 11-14. Details of the visit will be outlined in admittance correspondence.
