Summer officially begins today in the United States, and to kick things off I wanted to remind our eager applicants that SIPA’s Office of Admissions & Financial Aid is still open for business. So stop by from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday, excluding holidays, to speak with an admissions or financial aid staff member. (Don’t feel pressured to make an appointment as we only accept walk-ins.)
