Thank you for your interest in the Elliott School of International Affairs! This form is to request a Virtual Group Info Session and is intended to be used by groups from college grad-preparatory programs, community organizations, employers, etc.

Please note that it is difficult for us to accommodate groups below the 11th-grade level. Due to high visitor volume and staffing limitations, we are unfortunately not able to grant every request we receive. All requests must be made at least 2 weeks in advance.
