Harris Summer Hours

From June to September, the Admissions Office is open Monday-Thursday 9 am-5 pm and Fridays from 9 am-1 pm by appointment only.

We will have adjusted hours for the following summer holiday dates: Friday 5/24: 9 am-1 pm, Monday 5/27: closed, Wednesday 7/3: 9 am-1 pm, Thursday 7/4: closed, Friday 8/30: 9 am-1 pm, Monday 9/2: closed.  Please see below for ways to schedule a campus visit during the summer and visit our events page for more information about summer events.  We look forward to welcoming you to the Keller Center!


Prospective Evening Master’s Program (EMP) students have the opportunity to experience an EMP course by visiting a class. EMP classes take place at the convenient downtown Chicago Merchandise Mart at 1871 and allow mid-career professionals to get an inside look at our part-time program. Please note that class visits take place in the evening and are facilitated by current EMP students. Space is extremely limited for EMP class visits and are reserved for prospective students who have started an application and have already attended an EMP information session, EMP webinar, or 1:1 appointment.

Alternate Schedule

If the campus visit schedule doesn't work for you, contact Harris Admissions to schedule a visit with an Admissions staff member. Interested in visiting in the summer months? We offer one-on-one appointments and group visits with our Admissions staff. Please see our events page to register for a time slot.
