Undergraduate Events

Whether you’re just starting to look at colleges, or have already been accepted to Chatham (congrats!), we’re excited to bring you on campus and help you take the next step of your college journey. 

  • Individual on-campus visits are available Monday–Friday. Schedule your visit on our campus visit page
  • Large on-campus Admissions events and overnight visits are currently suspended; however, you can still visit campus in small groups and for individual tours, and attend a number of virtual events

Academic Scholarship Days

At Chatham, we’re proud of the financial aid we’re able to offer to students, and scholarship interview days are an important part of making that happen. In addition to the interview (which will take place with faculty in your academic area of interest) you’ll get to have a one-on-one meeting with a financial aid counselor to help answer your questions about Chatham’s affordability, applying for FAFSA, and other college financing questions.
