Yes. However, following national recommendations and executive order by New York State in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved to virtual operations. Our business hours remain the same: Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We’d love to talk with you. Please contact us!

For the health and safety of essential staff and students who are still on campus, as well as your own, we are discouraging any visitors. We have also temporarily suspended all in-person Admissions events, including information sessions, campus tours and open house programs. When circumstances regarding COVID-19 sufficiently improve, we will resume normal operations. This information will be posted on our website.

Virtual appointments with admissions counselors are now available, as are virtual group information sessions. You can also connect directly with a Skidmore student. Go here to accomplish any of these.
