Freshman Preview Day - Open House

Freshman Preview Day is your one-stop-shop to learn all things Clayton State. During the open house, you and your guest will have an opportunity to hear from Admissions, Financial Aid, Student Life and our College Deans. Tour our campus, venture inside the freshman on-campus housing, Laker Hall. Meet 1-on-1 with an admissions and financial representative to learn about the admissions and financial aid process. APPLY during the event and the application fee of $40 will be waived! Lunch will be provided.

COVID-19 Precautions: Everyone’s health and safety are of the highest priority while on campus at Clayton State. Our Open House group size has been reduced to account for proper social distance measures. Hand sanitizing stations are available throughout campus. We encourage visitors to bring their own masks/face coverings, as these are required on Clayton State’s campus. We will continue to do our best to present all the information in alternate ways and maintain the comfort of all.
