Troy University will host a virtual Open House on Thursday, April 23, as part of a worldwide event to assist prospective students in the areas of admissions and academic strategy for career development.
Application fees will be waived for those who apply for admission to TROY during the Worldwide Open House event online on April 23.
According to Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr, Chancellor of Troy University, “Online classes may be a new experience for some of our students, but online class delivery is certainly not new for TROY. As a pioneer in distance learning, we are well-equipped to help our students succeed in this time of uncertainty, and I remain convinced we will emerge from these challenging days as a stronger institution.”
This event is part of Troy University’s Worldwide Open House, which supports the University’s four campuses in Alabama and more than 20 other locations across the nation and around the world. Prospective students may view a virtual open house session at their convenience between the hours of 12:00 a.m. (CST) on April 23 and 11:59 p.m. (CST) on April 24.
Those wishing to participate in the virtual open house event can register online at troy.edu/openhouse.
