At certain times of the year, Duke University's Office of Undergraduate Admissions hosts free workshops for children of Duke staff and faculty. Workshops address how students in the 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades and their families can best prepare for the college application process. This seminar will not focus on admission to Duke or any other specific college. Families will receive communications in advance of scheduled workshops. Families interested in learning more about admission to Duke in particular are encouraged to sign up for our virtual information sessions and tours at the Duke Undergraduate Admissions website.
