Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Brandeis does not have the traditional Spring Break, but it does have a week off in February and a week off in April to accommodate for Passover.
  • You need to start working on the language and PE requirements right away because they are easy to forget.
Interviews & Information Sessions
Students are encouraged to have an admissions interview, but it is not required. Interviews are held on campus with a member of the admissions staff. The interviews are a great way for students to show their interest and have their questions answered in depth.
Campus Tours
Campus tours are available throughout the year. Tours last approximately one hour, with a half hour informational session before or after the tour. Visiting classes is also recommended. Brandeis hosts several open houses as well. An open house allows a prospective student to meet with faculty and staff, provides parents with an informational session, and offers several activities. To schedule a group information session or interview, see a schedule of tour dates and times, and get more information on tours, overnight visits, open houses, and interviews, please visit, or contact the Office of Admissions at (781) 736-3500.
Overnight Visits
Overnight visits, or day-long visits, need to be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.

Brandeis also hosts an "Accepted Students Day" at which potential first years can meet other accepted students and stay overnight.
