Next Steps After Enrolling

  • Be on the lookout for a letter about setting up your Skidmore email. Important paperwork will be sent to you, using your Skidmore email address, throughout the summer months.
  • Check important dates and deadlines (dates will be updated as they become available).
  • You are invited to attend an Accepted Candidate Day event, held on campus on April 5, April 12, or April 15. Registration starts in late March, so keep an eye on your email.
