Visit the Lauder Institute

Lauder Visit Program

We are excited to announce that on-campus information sessions for the Lauder program have resumed as of March 2022.

You may register for a campus visit via the Wharton Program Campus Visit website here. Lauder admissions will host small information sessions at 3PM on March 17 and 31 and April 7, 14, and 28. All sessions will take place in the Lauder Institute building in the third floor board room. Please stop by our reception desk on the second floor to check in.

Important: you must register for a campus visit via the Wharton website and complete all on-campus visiting protocols including the PennOpen Pass pre-screening on the day of your visit.

You must pre-register to take part as we are unable to accommodate walk-in visitors at this time.
