MACC Admission Events

We offer a variety of events that bring you to campus, get your questions answered and put you directly in touch with our current students, faculty members, program director and admissions team. Can't make it to Columbia? No problem. Watch an information session from your living room, or catch us in your city during one of our MACC on Tour events.

Virtual Information Sessions

Can’t make it to an on-campus event? We’ve got you covered. We offer online presentations held at various times of the day to accommodate your schedule and travel needs. Get all of your questions answered directly by the MACC director. Join us for an informative online discussion about the MACC graduate program at a time that fits your schedule.

On-Campus Information Sessions

Our On-Campus Information Sessions give you a glimpse into our program. We provide an in-depth overview of our program, what it takes to get in and opportunities for earning scholarships and graduate assistant positions. You can also enjoy a tour of our new Moore School building and dinner with current students, alumni and faculty members to gain their perspectives on our program.

The information sessions typically run from 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The tour and dinner follow.

MACC on Tour

Catch us in a town near you. We visit graduate fairs and student organization meetings, and we even hold special information sessions outside of Columbia.

MACC One-on-Ones

This is a personalized opportunity to meet with us one-on-one. We’ll show you around, review your application materials, give you feedback and answer your questions. We'll work around your schedule. Email us at to get on our calendar.

Decision in a Day

An accelerated, one-day admissions event. Applicants interview in the morning, and receive an admission and financial award decision in the afternoon. This event is when we award our largest fellowships.

How it works:
Applicants for the MACC program must submit their applications and required materials by the deadlines listed below. By participating in Decision in a Day, applicants will interview instead of completing the statement of purpose and letters of recommendation requirements. All attendees are automatically considered for our largest fellowship awards. Before you leave, you receive your potential admission and financial award package.

Please note that registration for Decision in a Day does not guarantee an invitation or consideration for fellowship awards (see eligibility requirements below).

MACC: Day One

During the months of February and March, admitted students are invited to catch a glimpse of what it means to be a part of the MACC community. We’ll walk you around, answer any remaining questions and let you unwind at a social event with other incoming and current MACC students.
