Pennsylvania Travel Restrictions
The Pennsylvania Department of Health has issued a 14-day quarantine recommendation for individuals traveling from certain states. Please check their website to see if you are traveling from one of the impacted areas. If so, please follow the quarantine recommendation.
Virtual Visit Options
All students are welcome to register for a virtual information session. We offer both regular information sessions as well as specific regional information sessions. Please invite others in your household to join you and bring your questions!
What is the difference between a regional information session and a regularly scheduled information session? Regional sessions will allow you to meet the counselor who is assigned to your area and will be your primary point of contact throughout the admissions process. (Note: Regions are based on the location of your high school.) Both sessions will provide you with a great overview of Gettysburg College.
Student panels will allow you to connect with three of our current students to discuss all aspects of life at Gettysburg and to get all of your questions answered!Register for a student panel
We invite you to learn about distinctive aspects of Gettysburg College by participating in a variety of specialty panels. Please check back often as these will continually be added and updated.Register for a specialty session
