Phone appointments
Call 617-495-3414 at your scheduled time to be connected with your confirmed representative.

Schedule an Appointment

A limited number of appointments will be available through the fall. As a result, we ask that you sign up for only one in order to accommodate as many individuals as possible.

If you miss or cancel an appointment, it may be difficult to reschedule, due to the high level of interest. We will do our best to accommodate late arrivals, however, it is not always possible to do so, as appointments are often scheduled back-to-back. If you are running late or need to change your appointment, please call 617-495-3414.

Note: all appointments are listed in Eastern Time.

Admissions Liaisons

All of our admissions counselors are knowledgeable about the full range of HGSE’s degree programs and can help you determine which program may be the best fit for you. Please select an appointment time and date that best fits with your schedule.

Other Events & Opportunities

Due to the large number of requests we receive, we realize that it may not be possible to accommodate everyone in this way. As a result, we offer a variety of opportunities to engage with HGSE, some of which may better assist you with your decision-making process (e.g., on-campus open houses, off-campus information sessions, virtual information sessions about programs). Admissions representatives, as well as other members of the HGSE community, participate in these events.
