The best way to get a feel for Simmons is to visit our campus. We invite you to attend an Adult Students Information Session or to schedule an individual visit tailored to your interests.

During your visit, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about Simmons academic programs, check out the campus and activities, and get the admission and financial aid information you need.

If you're interested, feel free to schedule a guided campus tour or request a class visit. Additionally, we'd be more than happy to set up a personal meeting with a faculty member or to help facilitate a conversation with a current adult student.
