The hard work is over—for now. To help your transition to SAIC, we are providing you with two opportunities to meet with us—at receptions in cities around the country and abroad, and here on campus at our preregistration day and ARTBASH. The programming for these events is different, and attendance at both is encouraged.

We look forward to seeing you, and please do not hesitate to contact us in the meantime with your questions!
